NJ Comedian Liz Glazer to Record Comedy Special at SOPAC

(SOUTH ORANGE, NJ) -- On Thursday, May 16, 2024, comedian Liz Glazer will be the first comedian to ever record a comedy special on the Mainstage at South Orange Performing Arts Center (SOPAC). Showtime is 7:30pm.

A South Orange resident, Glazer has been doing comedy for ten years.  And before that she was a tenured law professor for nine!  She recorded her first comedy album, A Very Particular Experience, at two sold out headlining shows at the New York Comedy Festival.  It debuted at #1 on the iTunes Comedy Charts for six consecutive days and was featured in The New York Times.  Glazer is a recent first place winner of both the Boston Comedy Festival and the Ladies of Laughter Competition, and she opens for comedians such as Maria Bamford and Judy Gold.  She has been on NBC’s The Blacklist, BULL on CBS, and ABC’s For Life.  Glazer’s comedy draws on her experience as a lawyer and law professor, a rabbi’s wife, and a mother.

Glazer is deeply connected to SOPAC, serving as an advisor to the Creative Community Brain Trust and helping to guide the performing arts center towards increasingly inclusive and community-focused programming.  Liz has performed in numerous all-female nights of comedy at SOPAC, including the SO Jewish Comedy Night in December 2023.  

Tickets start at $29 and are available for purchase online. South Orange Performing Arts Center (SOPAC) is located at One SOPAC Way in South Orange, New Jersey.

“Liz is not just making comedy history, she’s making SOPAC history!” says SOPAC Director of Programming Dan Stankus.  “I couldn’t be more thrilled to witness Liz bring laughter to our stage and leave her mark on our theater.  Good times.  See you there!”
