Comic Carol Leifer at the MJCCA, Sept. 10
Carol Leifer, acclaimed stand-up comedian, Emmy-nominated writer and best-selling author, brings to the MJCCA stage her one-woman show that touches on aging, love, parenthood, family matters, and the world of Jewish humor. Hailed by The Washington Post as “one of the best comedic minds of our time,” Leifer has headlined at The Comic Strip, Catch A Rising Star and The Improv. Her writing and producing credits include Saturday Night Live, The Larry Sanders Show, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, and Seinfeld – where she is known as the inspiration for the character Elaine Benes. She is a regular writer for the Academy Awards and has written for Billy Crystal, Chris Rock, Whoopi Goldberg and Ellen DeGeneres. She is also the author of two best-selling books, How to Succeed in Business Without Really Crying: Lessons from a Life of Comedy and When You Lie About Your Age, the Terrorists Win.
Leifer performs Sunday, Sept. 10 at 7:30 p.m. at the Marcus Jewish Community Center Atlanta. Tickets are $20 for MJCCA members and $25 for nonmembers and are available online here.
