Joy Behar Launching Autobiographical One-Woman Show
Joy Behar will soon be starring in an autobiographical one-woman show called Me, My Mouth and I off Broadway.
Joy Behar's New Play
Behar’s Me, My Mouth and I is slated to run for seven weeks during the fall at the Cherry Lane Theater, reported The New York Times. The play will chart Behar’s experience growing up in Brooklyn and subsequently launching a career in comedy doing the stand-up circuit and appearing on TV sitcoms to her 16-year run on ABC’s The View.
Behar, 71, is likely best known for her time on The View, debating hot topics alongside Barbara Walters, Elisabeth Hasselbeck, Rosie O’Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg among others. One of the original members of the panel, Behar was known for her sharp wit and left-leaning political views.
"You reach a point when you say to yourself, 'Do I want to keep doing this?'” Behar told Deadline last year after deciding to leave The View. “There are other things on my plate I want to do–I've been writing a play, I've been neglecting my standup."
Me, My Mouth and I will begin previews at the West Village theater Nov. 6 and will officially open Nov. 23, running through till Dec. 21.
