Thanks a lot for 2 hours of laugh! As a red diaper baby myself – from the heartland of communism and Jewish humor -, I found every minute of this show brilliant and funny, profound without preachy and affectionate without sentimental.

My husband and I loved the show – it is not often that we find theater that makes us laugh and want to do a term paper. Amazing. We’re telling everyone we know to get there – I am encouraging my friend who teaches AP History to give extra credit to her students if they go. I swear the papers she gets next time will have better source material than Wikipedia…

You don’t have to be Jewish to love this show! It is brilliant and funny, and it grabbed me from start to finish without missing a beat. I’m telling all my friends to go see it, and I hope it goes on to NY and LA, so I can tell all my friends there, too.

I have friends in the D.C., area that missed your, Is Andy Worhol Good For The Jews. Will you be doing it again in Virginia or near D.C. If not, will you have it available on DVD.

I just saw your performance at in Mill Valley and loved it.
Thanks for the informative and fun presentation.

Hey, Kathy! I’d love to come back to Seattle! It’s been years since I had the wonderful experience of performing my “Love & Taxes” show at the Intiman. Please ask your favorite Seattle theater to book me — and soon!

Good luck for 2011! I see you are already booked and busy!

Let’s get together sometime and talk about the dark days of PM&S. You always keep me laughing.

Regards to you & your wife and son.

LOVED Josh Kornbluth’s new show “Andy Warhol: Good for the Jews?” at Ashby Stage last night. Hilarious, irreverent, provocative and introspective story of how the son of a NY communist discovered God on the GW Bridge, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and a few other unlikely places, and ultimately reconnected with his Jewish heritage at the Temple next to the Andronico’s on University Ave. in Berkeley. If you are a Jew or just Jewish-curious you should see this show!
