Comedian Judy Gold walks down a busy street in San Francisco, ear glued to a cell phone, mind on lunch.
"I just want to order some food," she said, ducking into a cafe.
Through the muffled sounds of her hand over the phone you can make out her order: sandwich, hold the bacon, bag of chips.

"If you've watched HBO, you've likely seen Judy Gold. She's the tall comedian with the glasses who interviews moviegoers to fill airtime between shows. She also won an Emmy for her work on 'The Rosie O'Donnell Show.'

She's very funny. And she's headed our way. Invisible Theatre brings Gold here to perform her solo off-Broadway show, '25 Questions for a Jewish Mother,' taken from Gold's book of the same name. It consists of interviews she conducted across the country with mothers of varying ages, ethnicities and occupations.
