Laraine Newman’s memoir, May You Live in Interesting Times, chronicles her life and experiences that seem to have been on the forefront of every pop culture shift in America: from the British invasion and the music scene in Los Angeles, to the beginning of The Comedy Store and how it started, the prominence of comedy, the forming of The Groundlings, the beginning of Saturday Night Live, to the beginning of the rising prominence of animation. This, while dealing with her demons, getting sober, having children and reinventing herself.

Laraine Newman is a founding member of The Groundlings and an original cast member of Saturday Night Live. She has worked for directors ranging from Woody Alan to Guillermo Del Toro. She has written for the Jewish Journal, McSweeney's, Esquire and The Believer.
