I'm Too Fat for This Show

I'm Too Fat for This ShowIn this shockingly hilarious and brutally honest solo performance, actor/writer Kate Huffman embodies 18 characters that take us on a journey through life with a decades-long eating disorder.

Kate Huffman (Fresh Off the Boat) guides us through two decades of living with an OCD-instilled eating disorder that requires her to live by a strict set of rules and rituals rooted in numbers and eternal body hatred. Masterfully guided by director, Scout Durwood (Mary + Jane), Huffman utilizes biting precision and enchanting levity with every character she presents along her embattled journey.

Laughter and empathy pave the way for a deeper understanding of the physical and emotional effects that OCD and body dysmorphia create in children and adults. I'm Too Fat for This Show presents an opportunity for all people with obsessions, neuroticism, or overwhelmingly negative self-talk to laugh at themselves.

AUDIENCE REACTION:

“Funny, heartbreaking, and so very relatable in surprising ways.”

“Impressive, brave, a tad disturbing, and funny.”

“So well-paced, such a perfect mixture of comedy and tragedy. I thought I knew about eating disorders, but I learned a lot.”

“Amazing and powerful! Heroic is for sure a word that fits.”

“It makes me feel less alone in the constant journey to want to be happy and feel good in my own skin.”
