Description

Making Trouble is a documentary that tells the story of six of the greatest female comic performers of the last century — Molly Picon, Fanny Brice, Sophie Tucker, Joan Rivers, Gilda Radner and Wendy Wasserstein. Hosted by four of today’s funniest women — Judy Gold, Jackie Hoffman, Cory Kahaney and Jessica Kirson — it’s the true saga of what it means to be Jewish, female, and funny.

“These talented women defied cultural expectations and opened doors that ALL women are walking through today” says Gail Reimer, Executive Producer. “They turned the tables on stereotypes about Jewish women comedians and what was appropriate for a comedy routine. They continually surprised their audiences, all while keeping them laughing.”

Making Trouble was the sold-out closing film of the 2007 Minneapolis Jewish Film Festival. For those of you who missed it—now’s your chance to see it! For those of you who were lucky enough to get a ticket — come back to see it again! Film provided by The National Center For Jewish Film.

Recommended for ages 18 and up (language/sexual humor).
