Jules Feiffer will offer a performance of his solo show Jules Feiffer: Funny Side Up on November 15 at the Samuel J. Friedman. The event will benefit the Writer's Guild of America, East (WGAE) Foundation, an organization of professional writers who volunteer their writing skills in the service of underserved populations.

In the piece, Feiffer will take theatergoers through his extraordinary career using a slide show of comic strips, both his own and his contemporaries and the masters who inspired him as a boy. He will also highlight some of his artwork that has never before been shown in public. A brief question and answer session will follow the presentation.

Feiffer's Pulitzer Prize-winning comic strip ran for 42 years in the Village Voice as well as 100 other papers. Among his plays are the Obie Award-winning Little Murders, as well as the Tony Award-nominated Knock Knock. He is the author of the screenplay for the film Carnal Knowledge and the Academy Award-winning animated short Munro, and has written numerous books.
