When They Come for the Comedians We Are All in Trouble
From award-winning comedian Judy Gold, an equal parts thoughtful and hilarious polemic on the current efforts to censor comedians, arguing that they undermine the art—and purpose—of comedy itself.
No one makes me laugh harder than Judy Gold. If I had to pick one comedian to write a book about free speech, it would be Judy. – Amy Schumer
Judy Gold’s years of blazing free speech trails serve her well in this thoughtful funny book. – Jon Stewart
Part memoir and part stand-up routine, this hilarious and affecting play breaks down just what makes Jewish mothers so lamentable, laughable, and lovable. Comedienne Judy Gold and playwright Kate Moira Ryan seamlessly weave actual interviews with Jewish mothers across the United States together with memories from Gold’s childhood and her own experiences as a Jewish mother in order to create a performance piece that explores it all: from rugelach to rabbis, matzoh to marriage, Ann Landers to Anne Frank, and guilt to G-D.
In her 3rd CD, “Conduct Unbecoming”, Judy covers being part of the LGBQT+ community, having children in her fifties, and when they become a teenager wanting a tattoo.
Judy Gold’s 2nd CD, “Kill Me Now” is here NOW, just in time for the holidays. I promise it'll make you want to live. Already sick of Xmas songs? Nothing brings holiday cheer more than listening to a loud Jewish lesbian telling jokes.
