Judy Gold (born November 15, 1962) is an American stand-up comedian and actress. She won two Daytime Emmy Awards for her work as a writer and producer on the Rosie O'Donnell Show. She has also been involved in many projects in various roles, including the television series All American Girl and HBO At the Multiplex segments where she asks humorous questions of unexpecting moviegoers.
She is known for her height (6'3", 1.91 m), curly hair, and glasses. She first did stand-up on a dare while in college at Rutgers University. She is a lesbian, shared a relationship with her former partner, Sharon, for almost 20 years, and has children (Henry, 1997, and Ben, 2001), facts she frequently referenced in her comments on the show Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn. Judy is very active in the GLBT community, as well as Jewish. Gold herself is a Conservative Jew. She was active in support of the 2004 Democratic presidential campaign.
Her one-woman show 25 Questions for a Jewish Mother, co-written with Kate Moira Ryan, is based on a series of interviews with more than 50 Jewish mothers in the U.S. Their stories are interspersed with anecdotes about her own mother and her life as a lesbian mother of two sons. It ran at the Ars Nova Theater in New York City in spring 2006 and reopened on October 12, 2006, at St. Luke's Theater. A book based on the show is scheduled for May 2007.
