Bill Maher - Carol Leifer
A trailblazing female in the world of stand-up comedy, Carol Leifer is a sought-after comedy writer and producer who has written for such shows as Saturday Night Live, Seinfeld, The Larry Sanders Show, and the Emmy Award-winning Modern Family, for which she won a 2012 Writers Guild Award. She was most recently a head writer for the 2012 Academy Awards hosted by Billy Crystal, and has appeared on such shows as The Oprah Winfrey Show, The View, Late Night with David Letterman, Larry King Live, and "The Howard Stern Show."
In her engaging keynote and stand-up presentations, Leifer draws on her natural gifts as a storyteller to weave an interconnected tale that touches on such topics as her Jewish upbringing, her experiences as a woman in the male-dominated entertainment industry, and her coming out as a lesbian at the age of 40. A proud woman's rights advocate, she supports a woman's right to choose (whether it's making health choices, career choices, or personal choices), making her a natural and often requested choice for women's organizations, corporate audiences, and healthcare agencies.
Leifer also shares her unique perspective on life in 2009's acclaimed When You Lie About Your Age, the Terrorists Win, a memoir that served as a catalyst for her to share some of her most personal stories, including her coming out, her decision to adopt children with her partner, and her breast cancer scare. In this book as well as in her presentations, she reveals what it was like for her to finally find - and embrace - her "authentic self" and encourages audiences to do the same with her trademark wit and wisdom.
