Not Getting Any Younger

Written and Performed by Marga Gomez
Developed with Ellen Sebastian Chang

“Wild mix of childhood memory, social satire, reflections on aging, denial of same, confession, evasion and laugh riot.”  
Highest Rating, SF Chronicle

Marga Gomez tackles the latest generational divides, weaving her commentary through hilarious surreal life vignettes: little Marga visits the worst amusement park ever with her showgirl mom, little Marga attends a dysfunctional birthday party for her childhood nemesis Crazy Lisa and adult Marga tries to get a senior discount at Forever 21. In an energetic and meta 55 minutes Marga looks back on how even an outspoken lesbian can find herself in the closet for women of a certain age.


KQED July 22, 2020
“Within two weeks of the shutdown, Gomez had already launched the first of many virtual comedy shows, the format of which she’s tweaked with each subsequent edition. First there were midday comedy brunches, then afternoon “high tea,” a Cinco de Mayo bash, a birthday party doubling as a political fundraiser, and, most recently, 30-minute “queer quickies” with co-host, the fabulous Jesús U. BettaWork. And finally, at long last, live-streamed performances of The Spanking Machine, running through July 25.”
