Funny Business: Ep. 248
Comedian Judy Gold on her new book, “Yes I Can Say That,” and California Representative Katie Porter on the key to pandemic economic recovery This week on Unorthodox, we’re spoiling the new Borat movie for you. But we have two all-star returning guests that more than make up for it. Jewish guest Judy Gold was on our January 2018 live show with Father Jim Martin, and she joins us again to tell us about her new book. “Yes, ICan Say That: When They Come for the Comedians, We Are All in Trouble.” She explains the value of comedy in dark times, why Jews rely so deeply on humor for healing, and why she always talks about the Holocaust in her sets. Our Gentile of the Week is Congresswoman Katie Porter, who represents California’s 45th Congressional District and who was our guest at our January 2019 live show in Washington, D.C. Representative Porter joins us with her trademark whiteboard to explain why she decided to run for Congress in 2018, what she’s learned since then, and why childcare is key to our economic recovery. Her question for us: Why do Jews donate money in increments of $18? Send us questions and comments at unorthodox@tabletmag.com, or leave us a voicemail at (914) 570-4869.
