About this show

Humiliating her ex-boyfriend Mitchell in public was a perfectly satisfying career for Anita Liberty, but then she had to go and do something she swore never to do -- she got over it. Then, to make matters worse, she fell blissfully in love, and now she's really got problems. In her show, How To Stay Bitter Through The Happiest Times of Your Life, Anita explains what it's like when an angry performance poet finds herself perilously close to true happiness and has to cling desperately to her artistic edge. While navigating the unfamiliar course of a healthy and happy romantic relationship, Anita also finds herself getting into bed with Hollywood and discovering that, even though Hollywood told her how much it loved her, Hollywood was only ever in it for the sex.
