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.

Feb 14, 2017 Just named one of Rolling Stone’s “50 Best Stand-up Comics of All Time

See Elayne featured weekly on the hit CNN series, The History of Comedy. Reruns happening now, and the new season is about to begin. “This new CNN Original Series explores what makes us laugh, why, and how that’s influenced our social and political landscape throughout history.”

If you think you can have a better time anywhere on earth than being at The Tonight Show and hanging out with Jimmy, you can’t. Getting ready for my next visit.

Animal Activist? Well, yes. This is what I do the other 23 hours of every day. I run my own nationwide non-profit animal rescue and advocacy organization, Elayne Boosler’s “Tails of Joy“.

Check us out, and be sure to shop. We have great stuff and it all goes 100% to saving lives. Enjoy our latest rescue press: Dogster Hero!


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.
