Wednesday, April 8, 3 pm ET The Halli Casser-Jayne Show joining Halli at her table are two very funny ladies: actress, comedienne and writer Annabelle Gurwitch and comedienne and author Lizz Winstead.
Annabelle Gurwitch is the author of YOU SAY TOMATO, I SAY SHUT UP now a play receiving its third national tour, and FIRED! which became an acclaimed documentary and Showtime comedy special. She gained a loyal comedic following during her years hosting Dinner and a Movie on TBS and has been a regular commentator on NPR and contributor to The Nation, More and Glamour among other national publications. Her acting credits include over fifty guest roles in shows including Seinfeld and Boston Legal. Recently, she starred in the world premiere of A Coney Island Christmas at The Geffen Playhouse. And then Annabelle turned 50, became a statistic, one of the many Americans who every seven and a half seconds reaches the milestone, the subject of her book I SEE YOU MADE AN EFFORT, COMPLIMENTS, INDIGNITIES, AND SURVIVAL STORIES FROM THE EDGE OF 50.
A stand-up comedienne by trade, Lizz Winstead is one of the giants of comedy. Winstead got her start in her native Minneapolis, honing her skills in what she calls the “punk rock ghetto” of the early 1980s. She dreamed up a new satirical genre for television when she created THE DAILY SHOW back in 1996 and was co-founder of the Air America Radio network, giving Rachel Maddow her first national audience. In her book LIZZ FREE OR DIE, Winstead writes of her early years, growing up Catholic, getting pregnant the first time she had sex, her move to New York City to follow her calling in comedy, and the many challenges she faced along the way.
