Jackie Hoffman sits down with Judy Gold at the 92 Street Y

Jackie Hoffman is one of my favorite Jewish comedians. She joined Judy Gold, Cory Kahaney, and Jessica Kirson as a host in JWA's film about funny Jewish women, Making Trouble. A Second City veteran, Jackie Hoffman is known for her outrageous facial expressions and Jewish-themed standup, original songs, and monologues, including "If You Call This Living," "The Kvetching Continues," and  "Jackie's Kosher Khristmas." On June 6, she sat down with Judy Gold at the 92nd Street Y to talk about her Orthodox upbringing and path to comedy.

Just recently, Editor of Jewish Boston David Levy shared her song "Shavuoth," which explains the holiday in no uncertain terms. (Hilarious - worth a listen!) The song is part of the album Jackie Hoffman Live at Joe's Pub.

Jackie Hoffman has also appeared in a number of popular films and tv shows, including Kissing Jessica Stein, Garden State, Legally Blonde 2: Red, White and Blonde, 30 Rock, and Curb Your Enthusiasm. She's currently starring as Grandmama in the new Broadway musical The Addams Family.
