About this show

Fat Bitch! is a funny, provocative glimpse at the American "fat and sassy" black woman stereotype. Plus-sized performer Erica Watson explores society's obsession with weight, race and class and how black women's bodies have always been subjected to both admiration and ridicule. Drawing upon iconic images including "Mammy" and "Hottentot Venus," Watson illustrates how media images have impacted her self-esteem as she touches on PETA's "Save the Whales" campaign aimed at overweight women, the "war on obesity," and the controversy surrounding President Obama's nomination of a plus-sized black woman for Surgeon General.
