Former SNL comedy writer and five-time Emmy winner, Alan Zweibel visits the Katz JCC!

Zweibel was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York on May 20, 1950 to a Jewish family. He grew up in the New York City suburbs of Wantagh and Woodmere on Long Island.[1] He graduated from George W. Hewlett High School in 1968 and the University at Buffalo in 1972.[2]

Upon graduation from college, Zweibel started writing for stand-up comedians who paid him seven dollars a joke. He later compiled over 1,100 of them into a portfolio which he showed to producer Lorne Michaels who then hired Zweibel to be one of the original writers of a new show called Saturday Night Live.  On the TV screen Alan has appeared in episodes of “Curb Your Enthusiasm” and “Law & Order.”

Alan brings a whole new twist to the traditional Haggadah with his latestbook, For This We Left Egypt?.  Take the stress out of holiday prep with a night of laughter, as Alan discusses his book!

This event will take place in the JCC Social Hall.
Cost: $10/members, $20 guests
