RIDGEFIELD, Conn. A laugh is guaranteed at the Ridgefield Playhouse Sept. 14 as it welcomes Emmy winner Joy Behar to the stage.
Behar is one of the women of ABCs morning talk show The View, but she got her start as a stand-up comedian. She is known for focusing her act around politics, interviews and literature.
She earned a masters degree in English education from SUNY at Stony Brook and taught for some time before branching out into comedy.
After making her name at New York City comedy clubs, like Carolines, Behar hosted her own show on HLN called The Joy Behar Show as well as a radio call-in show on WABC.
In 2009, she added a Daytime Emmy for hosting The View to her growing list of awards, which include three MAC awards and a Cable ACE award.
As if her time in film, television and stage wasn't enough, Beher also is a New York Times bestselling author for her childrens book Sheetzucacapoopoo: Max Goes to the Dogs.
For tickets to Behars show, $80 each, contact the Ridgefield Playhouse at 203-438-5795 or at its website .
