Comedian Monica Piper, the Emmy Award-winning and Golden Globe nominated writer and actress who we've featured doing stand-up comedy earlier this year, is starring in Not So Jewish, a hilarious and heartfelt autobiographical ride of a Jew-“ish” woman’s life.
It's the one-woman show she wrote and performed for the Jewish Women's Theatre in Santa Monica, California. It's playing now at the New World Stages on West 50th Street in New York City.
From her show business family in the Bronx, to a WASP wedding, to her first step on a comedy club stage and life as a single mom, Piper shares the milestones and moments that shaped her life with the same signature wit found in her writing on Roseanne, Mad About You, and Rugrats.
The show is reminiscent of Billy Crystal's 700 Sundays with a peppering of Neil Simon's Lost In Yonkers, Reviewers have called it 90 lightning fast minutes of funny, moving, intimate and inspirational theater.
Here's a video clip from the show. Enjoy!
