Elayne Boosler and doggy friend


Welcome to the official website of comedian, writer, and animal activist Elayne Boosler.

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 ready. Thank you.

May 16th, sigh.. Thirty years today that dear Andy Kaufman is gone, but not forgotten. Here we are at Coney Island, opening day, 1974. Thank you for everything my friend.
