Over the course of 80 minutes, the audience travels with Piper from innocence to individuality, reliant to resilient, sharing both the hilarity and the heartache along the way.
The writer behind comedy shows like Roseanne, Mad About You and show-runner on the Emmy-winning) Rugrats, Monica Piper tackles the ups and downs of being an unwilling New York showbiz kid in this captivating show that has already won over audiences on the West Coast. From reliant Jewish princess to self-reliant comedian, this show charts Piper's rise in comedy from her fame-deluged beginnings, and just why she is one of the front-running female writers in the comedy show genre. Directed by Eve Brandstein, this sharp and witty work was commissioned by the Los Angeles-based Jewish Women's Theater.
Comparisons have already been made to Billy Crystal's 2014 one-man show "700 Sundays" in regards to references to his late father and the starkly comic family capers that took place; however this fresh introspect from a female Jewish comic will shear memories of brash female comics of late, yet offering a sublimely intimate look at her complicated family dynamic, without becoming too crude. A joy to get involved with - and let's face it; Piper ran the Rugrats with all its sly and tongue-in-cheek comedy. What's seriously not to like here?
