Description

A transatlantic middle-aged Jewish atheist divorcee walks into a bar... Leslie Gold (as seen at the Comedy Store) delivers her first solo stand-up show, with bold storytelling, batshit family drama, and at least one really good rant. Reviews from Edinburgh Fringe 2023: 'Leslie Gold breaks new feminist ground' (Kate Copstick, Scotsman); 'Savvy comedy chops' (EdFringeReview.com).
