On Thursday, March 20 at 7:30 p.m., Marion Grodin, daughter of Charles Grodin and author of Standing Up: A Memoir of a Funny (Not Always) Life will be at the JCC of Central New Jersey, 1391 Martine Avenue in Scotch Plains.

Grab your girlfriends and enjoy a fun night out with Marion who will share details about her Hollywood childhood, teenage years of drugs and sex and sober adult life on the stand-up circuit. Her hilarious autobiography/memoir is in the spirit of Carrie Fisher’s Wishful Drinking and Chelsea Handler’s Chelsea, Chelsea Bang, Bang. Marion Grodin knows firsthand that laughter is truly the best medicine, having not only survived breast cancer and divorce, but also, various addictions including an inappropriate relationship with Haagen Dazs.
