Mike keep the overflowing crowed laughing for an hour has he joked, punned, and revealed backstories about the most popular animated series in the history of Earth. Using video clips form the show, Mike revealed just a few of the stories inside his book, Springfield Confidential: Jokes, XSecrets, and Outright Lies from a Lifetime Writing for The Simpsons. After his talk Mike greeted friends, fans and Lambs as he signed copies of his book. Among the guests were comedian Jackie Martlin, writer Alan Zweibel, and Eric Schoenberg.
Later Mike and his wife, Denise, joined others in the pub to enjoy drinks and dinner. This evening was made possible by our friends at Harvardwood and Spence Porter. Everyone who attended agreed it was one of the most laughed-filled events in recent years. Readers may buy copies of his book online HERE.
Multi-talented Marilyn Michaels and her son, Mark Wilk, sat down with Lamb Magda Katz at The Lambs to talk about their new book, How Not To Cook, for the Rest of Your Life. Their book is an ANTI-cookbook: equals parts biography, self-help, and scrimp-n’-save philosophy.
This laugh-out-loud rant, served up by America’s premier comedienne/impressionist, is a no holds barred empowerment-driven read. This humorous tutorial also comes with anecdotes about Woody Allen, Orson Welles, Barbra Streisand, Liza Minnelli, Burt Reynolds, Joan Crawford, Bette Davis, Donald Trump, and dozens more—as well as priceless money-saving advice on curtailing the dollars you would normally blow on trivial things like weddings, summer camps, shrinks, and platform shoes… and using them for hiring a personal chef or housekeeper.

The Lambs and The Lambs Foundation pride themselves in creating an atmosphere that encourages the creative spirit by providing a “place where they come to enjoy each others’ company, and to display and hone their crafts in an atmosphere of creativity and support, and to nurture creative endeavors.” That’s part of our mission statement. Last night, June 26, 2018, was a perfect example when a staged reading of The Neverwuzez went up before a packed house at The Lambs.
Written by Ian Finkel, this dramedy featured Lamb Bob Greenberg, Cheryl Ann Allen, music and puppets. Ian is no stranger to The Lambs – his father, Fyvush Finkel, was a Lamb. In fact, Ian brought his father’s old Lambs’ membership card…and he brought his whole family! Not as audience members but as active players in this event. Ian wrote the book and music, and his brother, Elliot Finkel, provided incidental music on the piano. The actress in the production was not only well cast, but Ian’s wife, Cheryl Ann Allen. Dara Finkel, Ian’s daughter, was the puppeteer for ‘Wheezle’ along with her partner Sam Alicea, the puppeteer for ‘Beezle.’ Ian’s grandson, Landen Finkel, was the stage manager. Even though this was the first time on its feet with only a few rehearsals, The Neverwuzez is well on its way!
