Emmy award-winning writer, actress and comedian Monica Piper stars in 80 lightening minutes of hilarious and moving storytelling in the autobiographical ride of a Jew-“ish” woman’s life.
From her show business family, to a WASP wedding, to her first step on a comedy club stage, and an “almost” night with Mickey Mantle, to writing stints on Roseanne, Mad About You, and Rugrats, Monica was content loving chopped liver, voting Democratic and saying things like, "I’ll be doing laundry 'til Shevuous." That was Jewish enough… until she had a son.
Reminiscent of Billy Crystal’s 700 Sundays with a peppering of Neil Simon’s Lost in Yonkers, Not That Jewish is storytelling at its best - a perfect blend of funny, moving, intimate and inspirational. In the blink of an eye, we travel with Piper from innocence to individuality, reliant to resilient, willingly sharing both humor and heart along the way!
