Welcome!

Welcome to the official website of comedian, writer, and animal activist Elayne Boosler. Elayne started doing comedy in New York City in 1973, and has been on everything you have ever seen. So if you say to her, “Didn’t I see you on..??” Yes. Yes, you did.

We’re always under construction. Of course, I’m from New York. We’re using the same guys who are doing La Guardia Airport, so please check back in eighteen years, and the site will be almost ready. Thank you. We used dogs, cats and elephants to build Elayne’s animal rescue website, “Tails of Joy“, so of course that was done on time. You can always trust animals.


Can Comedy Defeat ISIS?

ISIS had better watch out because a new weapon might soon be deployed that it will really hate. No, not a new fighter jet or bomb. I’m talking “Borat.” And maybe even Chris Rock and Amy Schumer.

At least that’s what U2 frontman Bono told a Senate subcommittee last week, citing Sacha Baron Cohen, Rock and Schumer by name as he told the senators, “I think comedy should be deployed” in the fight versus ISIS.
