Lisa Kudrow and The Comeback


In 2005, Lisa Kudrow and Michael Patrick King co-created The Comeback, a penetrating and often brutal satire of reality TV, sitcoms, and show business in general, which aired on HBO for only one season. After a screening of the first episode, Lisa Kudrow will discuss the conception, execution, and untimely demise of the critically lauded series with Tod Lippy, editor of Esopus, whose current issue, Esopus 15: Television, features a long-form interview with Kudrow and King. Kudrow was one of the stars of the long-running sitcom Friends. Also participating in the discussion is Dan Bucatinsky, executive producer and actor on The Comeback.

Tickets: $20 public / $10 Museum members and Esopus subscribers / Free for Silver Screen members and above. Tickets may be either purchased or reserved (for Silver Screen members) by calling 718 777 6800.
