Judy Gold

Monday, July 18, 2011

Emmy Award-winner and comedienne Judy Gold talks about her return to the stage in “The Judy Show - My Life As A Sitcom,” a journey through her life with a little help from classic television sitcoms. Judy is the mother of two sons, has a girlfriend who is a therapist, and a mother who lives in a nursing home in New Jersey—all of which provides Judy with endless material.

Judy Gold, you are brilliant. Say, just had a drink with a fabulous lesbian Jewish friend last night who is looking for a new partner. obviously you are out, although I was so psyched for awhile til I heard "my new partner"...rats! ah well. anyhow if you have any advice for seeking out new lady partners besides, please let us know. match is kicking her ass, and we met at Ginger's bar and as you one will be meeting new loves at the lesbian bars these days. sigh.
anyhow, keep up the thought provoking and brave work you do. I find it inspiring. Many thanks.

The Brady Bunch was my ideal American family growing up. I saw it as typical and like my dream model family (with problems easily solved in one episode). The fact that they were blended really was inconsequential to the plots. I came from an artsy family so I idealized the Bradys. Great escapism for years and a big part of my growing up!

As a young white girl in a stable nuclear family in the suburban south, some of my favorite shows were about people I had absolutely nothing superficial in common with: What's Happening, Good Times, Welcome Back Kotter, One Day at a Time. I think I must have appreciated *finding* so much fundamentally in common with those characters. I must have liked that they did deal with real, sometimes heavy issues, with humor and with the same core values that I had in my own home.
