Virtual Taste of the Ann Katz Festival: Judy Gold (Zoom Live-stream)
October 22 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm$10 – $30
In Yes I Can Say That, comedy veteran Judy Gold argues that “no one has the right to tell comics what they can or cannot joke about…. Laughter is a unifier. It’s the best medicine…” For Gold, nothing is more insidious than enforcing silence and repressing jokes—the job of a comedian is to expose society’s demons, and confront them head-on, no prisoners allowed. In ten impassioned polemics, she frames comedy as a tool of empowerment, a way to reclaim hateful rhetoric and battle the democracy-crushing plight of censorship.
Uninhibited and bold, Gold is as skilled at making readers laugh as she is at exposing uncomfortable truths about our culture and society. In this era of partisan politics and gaping inequalities,Yes I Can Say That is the refreshingly candid, wickedly funny and deliciously blunt manifesto we need.
This evening will have Judy Gold presenting Yes I Can Say That. Presented in partnership with the JCC Literary Consortium.
$10 for ticket only, $30 for ticket + copy of book (includes shipping from A Cappella Books in Atlanta).
