About the show:

No Bad Days takes you through the stinging journey of watching someone die while reminding you how wonderful each day can be, even if it's your worst one yet.

My dad was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer in October 2014, and died in October 2015. This show describes the impossible process of saying goodbye while introducing you to his magical, eccentric spirit that has never left. We will cry. But my dad once sent me to school with fake poop to “have fun in algebra” so we will take breaks from crying as well. My dad always said that there were no bad days. So come, let’s take what would be a bad month, a bad day, and make it into a good one.

As featured in Paste Magazine: "Alyssa Limperis is a NYC-based comedian who has mounted several installments of her one-woman play No Bad Days, about her experience losing her father to brain cancer. Somehow, it’s packed with jokes." It is a 45 minute show that is directed by May Wilkerson. It has been featured at the Providence Fringe Festival, the Cinderblock Festival, the PIT, AS220, Improv Boston and IRT Theater.
