Marion Grodin began her life as the daughter of comedian, actor, and
talk show host Charles Grodin. She has comedy in her blood and began her career as a writer for television and film. Yet, she soon realized that the stage was calling.

For the last decade, Marion has been one of the hottest comics in the country. She has toured with Linda Ronstadt, opened for Lewis Black, Judy Gold, and Robert Klein, as well as having shared the stage with Jerry Seinfeld, Dave Chappelle, Roseanne Barr and Robin Williams. Marion has also been seen on NBC’s Late Night with Conan O’Brien, and ABC’s The View.

Marion knows firsthand that laughter is truly the best medicine, having survived breast cancer, divorce, and various addictions – including an inappropriate relationship to Haagen Dazs. In the tradition of Carrie Fisher’s “Wishful Drinking” Marion’s hilarious and heartbreaking book – “Standing Up : A Memoir Of A Funny (Not Always) Life”, published in 2013, chronicles her fascinating life and incomparable ability to find humor in pain.
