Booked Up with Jen Taub

Judy Gold on YES, I CAN SAY THAT

June 18, 2023

In This Episode:

They kvetched, they kvelled, they talked about Hitler. Naturally. What did you expect? This week Jen’s guest is two-time Emmy-Award winning comedian Judy Gold. Judy fit Booked Up into her busy schedule. This spring she finished her one-woman show called, “Yes, I can Say That”, based on her similarly titled book Yes, I Can Say That: When They Come for the Comedians, We Are All in Trouble.

The New York Times called Judy’s show “A deliberately uncomfortable, laugh-packed show seeded with stealth missiles.” Time Out said her performance was  “Funny and furious… a testament to the importance of speaking one’s truth, expecially for comedians.” There’s more… New York Stage Review said “Gold is so naturally funny, her delivery and comic timing so impeccable, that belly laughs are to be had in abundance.” And TheaterMania described Yes I can Say That as “An unflinching defense of free speech.”

With “Yes, I Can Say That” wrapped and  summer season upon us you can see Judy live at the Post Office Cafe and Cabaret in Provincetown three nights a week from June 25 through September 3. Oh, and she will also be in Montreal in July for the “Just for Laughs” festival.
