Beth El Virtual Gala

“Curb Your Anxiety” starring comedian Susie Essman

Susie Essman has played the sassy Susie Greene for all ten seasons of the critically-acclaimed HBO comedy series, Curb Your Enthusiasm. Her hilarious bouts of withering sarcasm and uninhibited insults have become her character’s trademark. 

Susie’s streetwise vernacular is perfectly suited for her life in Manhattan where she has been a veteran of the world of stand-up comedy for twenty-nine years.  She has appeared in her own half-hour HBO comedy special, made numerous appearances on Late Night with Conan O’Brien, The View, and Crank Yankers, to name just a few of her many television credits.  She has also acted in numerous films and published a book, “What Would Susie Say – Bullshit Wisdom About Love, Life and Comedy” now available in paperback.
