Betsy is an actress, comedian and former staff writer for “SATURDAY NIGHT SPECIAL” and the sitcom “ROSEANNE” and a joke writer for Anthony Robbins. She has appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and SHOWTIME’s “Fierce Funny Women” and is the author of Betsy’s Sunday School Bible Classics and other children-style books for adults, and a contributor to the just-released No Kidding: Women Writers on Bypassing Motherhood.
The Boston Globe said, “There are countless ways to make someone laugh, and Betsy Salkind knows most of them. Want sarcastic wit? Political humor? Or maybe just a good animal mime? Salkind can pull all that off and more.”
Andrea Kittelson, on Examiner.com, said, “What I admire about Betsy’s humor is not just her straightforward delivery but its keen intelligence. There are no fart jokes here. No racist how-many-Slavs-does-it-take-to-make-a-pie bon mots. No cheap I-don’t-know-what-to-say-next-so-I’ll-go-gutter defaults. Betsy writes material that is smart and delivers it in a way that’s funny.”
A complimentary lunch is provided after the talk. We’ll get a chance to meet, talk and get to know one another.
This meeting is free and open to the public. We rely on donations to keep it that way. The monthly meeting costs about $10/person to run. If you are able to, please contribute online or at the meeting.
Children are welcome to join our AU Kids program. The children have another area where they play and learn during the main event. Parents are free to attend the main event or stay with their children during the meeting. After the main event, we all come together for lunch.
Free parking is available in the lot adjacent to the building.
