Alan Zweibel, For This We Left Egypt?
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. He graduated from George W. Hewlett High School in 1968 and the University at Buffalo in 1972.
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
