PunchlineNeed a laugh with a literary twist? Then you might want to visit The Punchline, Atlanta’s top comedy club since 1982.

The club will be featuring two Jewish comics – no, not all comedians are Jewish. Marion Grodin and Fred Stoller will be telling jokes and talking about their new books and lives at a special performance on Thurs., Nov. 14 at 8 p.m.

Grodin, author of “Standing Up: A Memoir of a Funny (Not Always) Life” and daughter of comedian Charles Grodin, understands the value of laughter first hand. She’s well known for working with Chelsea Handler of “Chelsea Lately” and E! Entertainment Television.

She had a few ups and downs, and now she’s ready to share her story with all of us.

Stoller, author of “Maybe We’ll Have you Back: The Life of a Perennial TV Guest Star”, has been part of many delightful and culturally-enlightening programs, including “The Drew Carey Show”, “Friends”, “Dharma & Greg”, “Scrubs”, and “Hannah Montana”.

He has written episodes of Seinfeld and loaned his vocal talents to Fred the Squirrel in the television series “The Penguins of Madagascar”. His latest book, “Maybe We’ll Have you Back: The Life of a Perennial TV Guest Star”, follows his journey from comedy nightclubs in the early 1980s, to television appearances, screen writing, voiceovers and, now, travelling author.

Everyone can relate to searching for a dream job, the next big break or ways to avoid life’s curveballs. Sometimes laughter, even among strangers, can mend broken smiles. So get out to The Punchline!

Long-time patrons suggest sitting near the stage. Audience members often catch the attention of at least one of the comedians and end up being involved in a joke or two.
