Alicia McDaid is a Portland, OR. based visual, performance and video artist celebrating the emotional ecstasy and anguish of chronic existential crises with a comedically macabre flourish.  Utilizing elements of stand up comedy, character acting, musical theater, dance and self-help style over sharing, McDaid shares intimate stories from her life via live, video, social media and interactive performances in a way that is as digestible as your favorite guilty pleasure pop song or reality show yet, hopefully, more nourishing. 

During her tenure at LIKEWISE McDaid tended bar as 20+ personalities including Princess Diana, Garfield, Janet Jackson, and James Franco from Spring Breakers.
