/SPECIAL FOR THE AJT/

 

Marion Grodin, daughter of funnyman Charles Grodin, will bring her acerbic wit to the Marcus Jewish Community Center of Atlanta on Saturday evening, Feb. 22 at 8 p.m.

Grodin most recently appeared in Atlanta during the MJCCA’s annual November Book Festival where she presented her new book, “Standing Up,” a hilarious and heartbreaking look into her life thus far. Her performance earned her an invitation back to the MJCCA.

Over the last decade, Grodin has become one of the hottest comics in showbiz. She is a favorite at New York City’s top clubs, including Standup NY and Gotham Comedy Club, where she regularly headlines.

Whether she’s talking about her inappropriate relationship with Haagen Dazs or realizing that it’s only 9 a.m. and she’s eaten all of her Weight Watchers® points for the day, Grodin’s comic appeal is far-reaching.

Grodin has toured with Linda Ronstadt, opened for Lewis Black, Judy Gold, and Robert Klein, and has shared the stage with Jerry Seinfeld, Robin Williams, and Roseanne Barr.

She has been seen on “The Joy Behar Show,” NBC’s “Late Night with Conan O’Brien,” and ABC’s “The View.”

According to her friends Kyra Sedgwick and Kevin Bacon, “When life is getting us down and we need to laugh until tears come rolling down our cheeks, we go to a Marion Grodin Show.”

 

“Standing Up” will be available for purchase at the event and a book signing will follow the performance. Tickets are $15 – $22 and are available online at atlantajcc.org/boxoffice, by calling the MJCCA’s Box Office at (678) 812-4002, or in person at the MJCCA’s sports or front desks.
