Her film appearances include Hall Pass, directed by the Farrelly Brothers, Cookie, with Peter Falk, This Is My Life, directed by Nora Ephron, Woody Allen’s Manhattan Murder Mystery and a cameo in Tyler Perry’s Madea Goes to Jail. In theater she had a successful run in the off-Broadway hit The Food Chain, earning rave reviews in the starring role, and also in the critically-acclaimed The Vagina Monologues.
Emmy Award winning actress and comedian, Judy Gold is best known as the star of her two critically acclaimed long-running Off-Broadway hit shows.
