In Conversation with Jonathan Soroff, Improper Bostonian

Leventhal-Sidman JCC, Thursday, December 4 (7:30pm)

SOLD OUT

TV producer and host of the smash late night show Watch What Happens Live, Andy Cohen talks about his newest book that is honest, irreverent, and laugh-out-loud funny.  Andy Cohen has a front row seat to an exciting world not many get to see. In this dishy, detailed diary of one year in his life, Andy goes out on the town, drops names, hosts a ton of shows, becomes codependent with Real Housewives, makes trouble, calls his mom, drops some more names, and, while searching for love, finds it with a dog. Nothing is off limits.

Q&A and book signing after the program.

All JCC arts and humanities offerings are programs of the Ryna Greenbaum JCC Center for the Arts.
