During the recent 6-month Off-Broadway run of Judy Gold's new one-woman show The Judy Show: My Life As A Sitcom, the New York Times made it a critic's pick and raved that it was "Highly entertaining! Brash, Buoyant & Infectiously nostalgic" and the Huffington Post called it "Comedic Gold. A funny & fantastic ride! It's the ultimate laughter-through-the-tears tale." Judy Gold was nominated for a Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Solo Performance for her other most recent solo show 25 Questions for a Jewish Mother, which also won the GLAAD award for "Outstanding New York Theater." The New York Times called the show "fiercely funny, honest and moving." A subsequent book based on the show was nominated for the prestigious Quill Award. She also won two Emmy Awards as writer and producer for The Rosie O'Donnell Show and was nominated twice for the American Comedy Award's funniest female stand-up.
