- An American stand up comedian, three time Emmy nominee
Carol Leifer, comedian, writer, producer and actress.
David Letterman discovered her performing in a comedy club and she has since been a guest on Late Night with David Letterman over twenty-five times as well as numerous other shows and venues.
She has written many television scripts including for The Larry Sanders Show, Saturday Night Live, and most notably, Seinfeld.
Leifer’s “inner monologue” observational style is often autobiographical encompassing subjects about her Jewish ancestry and upbringing, coming out, same-sex marriage, relationships (having been married previously to a man and now partnered with a woman) and parenting.
Leifer has become vegan, saying “I recently became vegan because I felt that as a Jewish lesbian, I wasn’t part of a small enough minority.
So now I’m a Jewish lesbian vegan.
