EMMY Award winner Monica Piper returns to The Braid from her off-Broadway triumph!
Monica Piper performs her hit comedy NOT THAT JEWISH, (Los Angeles Drama Critics Circle award nomination “Best Solo Performance”) for a limited run, at The Braid where it was originally developed and ran for almost a year. On stage with the passion that has navigated her career to an EMMY Award win, GOLDEN GLOBE nomination, American Comedy Award nomination as one of the TOP FIVE female comedians in the country, and secured her as one of Showtime Network’s “Comedy All Stars,” Monica Piper brings her authentic humor and autobiographical journey to audiences in Los Angeles.
A story of life, a brush with death…love, pain, and Mickey Mantle, Piper shares the moments that shaped her life with the same signature wit found in her writing on Roseanne, Mad About You, and her Emmy Award-winning work on Rugrats. Reminiscent of Billy Crystal’s 700 Sundays with a peppering of Neil Simon’s Lost In Yonkers, NOT THAT JEWISH is 85 lightning-fast minutes of funny, moving and inspirational theater.
Born in the Bronx, but also a Campfire Girl, she admits, “You sense your life isn’t normal when you’re sitting on the D train with a bag of marshmallows and a twig.”

The performance is directed by Eve Brandstein, who has helmed over 75 theatrical productions in Los Angles and New York, most recently Miss America’s Ugly Daughter at The Broad Theater and Rain Pyror’s Fried Chicken & Latkes, which Eve will executive produce as a television series.
