Women. Non-binary folks. Jokes. GOLD Comedy is stepping out from behind their screens and joining the New York scene to debut their brand new GOLD digital production teams! This show will feature digital shorts, live sketches, and some of NYC’s hottest standup comics. It’ll be like combining a slumber party with a bachelorette party and an open casket funeral for your least favorite aunt! Sounds fun! GOLD digital production teams are teams of funny women and nonbinary folks who create sketch, parody, news, musical, and satire shorts. Eight teams across the U.S. launched in spring 2022— four in New York, two in L.A., one in Chicago, and one completely virtual team. Three-time Emmy-nominated director and producer Ana Bretón serves as teams advisor. And you may have seen team members on network TV, film, and comedy stages all over the world. Tickets here!

A Bintel Brief Live!

For one night only, your Jewish advice podcast will be live (in-person and online). In 1906, the Forward started A Bintel Brief, Yiddish for “A Bundle of Letters.” Now, our classic Jewish advice column is a podcast. Our co-hosts, Ginna Green and Lynn Harris, two very different Jewish mothers, dish on the dilemmas of Jewish-American life, identity, culture and politics. Join our insightful and hilarious hosts Ginna Green and Lynn Harris, along with the Forward’s archivist Chana Pollack and editor-in-chief Jodi Rudoren, for a lively conversation that will take you behind the scenes into the making of the podcast and into the history books.  Plus: We’ll take your questions for a Bintel Blitz round of real-time advice.
