Emmy Award-winning writer and comedian, Monica Piper, stars in her autobiographical solo show about being Jew-"ish." More…
From growing up in a show business family and taking her first step onto a comedy club stage, to a WASP wedding and an "almost" night with Mickey Mantle, Piper shares the milestones and moments that have shaped her life. Using the same signature wit found in her writing for 'Roseanne' and 'Mad About You,' Piper takes the audience on a journey from innocence to individuality, reliant to resilient, sharing both humor and heartache along the way.
