Deborah Gross: Blogger Turned Comedienne

By Allison Gaudet Yarrow

Published April 08, 2010.

Deborah Gross has so many funny conversations that she began blogging them — verbatim. She teaches people how to use the ATM. Her signature accessory, a family heirloom, gets mistaken for a swastika. And she has cultivated a unique relationship with an employee at the Dunkin’ Donuts she frequents where many of her conversations take place. Gross’ blog, Conversations with Deb serves as a template for a new show at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre in New York City, in which she recreates zany conversations she has had with strangers, her family and bad dates.

The next performances of “Conversations with Deb” are May 13 and 20.
