It amazes me that after seeing hundreds and hundreds of videos of different comedians I’ve never heard of I can still come across someone who has been doing it for a long time and I’ve never heard of them. That’s what happened today. I clicked on a Youtube clip of a comic that I’ve heard many times and was listening to it, doing something else on the other side of the room. Now that Youtube just plays random related videos now after everything you watch, this playlist came on:
Judy Gold! After listening to these clips I was lookin around and found she released a live cd in 2004 I then realized she has been at it for awhile. She hasn’t released a live album in quite some time, but according to her calendar she is still out there entertaining folks.
Judy co-wrote a book with Kate Moira Ryan called 25 Questions for a Jewish Mother. They interviewed 50 other Jewish mothers and asked them all the same 25 questions and the answers mixed with Judy’s own experiences are what the book consists of. She does a one woman show based off of the book as well and it looks like she’ll be doing that in Toronto this year.
On May 5th of this year Judy started a podcast called “Kill Me Now”. Here’s a descriptive quote from her website: “ Since Judy always seems to be pissed-off about something, she thought why not interview celebrities about what makes them angry – from the extraordinary to the mundane.” The latest episode’s (Episode 10) guest was none other than Artie Lange, check it all out here: Kill Me Now with Judy Gold
