As Long As You’re Asking—
An Evening of Comedy, Music and Conversation with Jason Alexander
Oshman Family JCC
“As Long As You’re Asking: A Conversation with Jason Alexander” is an evening of comedy, music and conversation with the award-winning star of stage and screen, with a twist: the audience determines what they want to know the most.
Alexander will present a variety of topics for the audience to pick and choose from, culminating in behind-the-scenes stories of his life, career and social activism. Alternatively, ask about anything you’ve always wanted to know and see if he can answer. Alexander has starred on Broadway, in hit films like Pretty Woman and Shallow Hal and, of course, on the TV series Seinfeld. He is an actor, director, producer, writer, children’s book author, award-winning magician, semi-pro poker player and social-political activist. It’s all on the table and the conversation is completely in your control, making for a once-in-a-lifetime event.
Though best known for his award-winning nine-year stint as the now iconic George Costanza of television’s Seinfeld, Jason Alexander has achieved international recognition for a career noted for its extraordinary diversity. Aside from his performances on stage, screen and television, he has worked extensively as a writer, composer, director, producer and teacher of acting. In between all that, he has also become an award-winning magician, a notorious poker player and a respected advocate on social and political issues.
For his depiction of “George” on Seinfeld, Alexander garnered six Emmy nominations, four Golden Globe nominations, an American Television Award and two American Comedy Awards. He won two Screen Actor Guild Awards as the best actor in a television comedy despite playing a supporting role, and in 2012 he was honored to receive the Julie Harris Award for Lifetime Achievement from the Actor’s Fund.
The event is part of the Jewish Luminaries Series.
We would like to recognize Susan Wolfe for generously sponsoring this event.
