Award Winning Comedian to Lighten the Mood at Grief Convention
Open to the public, New York Friars Club comedian Carol Scibelli will entertain and inspire audience with widowhood humor
By: AlyBlue Media
Scibelli of Manhattan, New York, is the author of the memoir Poor Widow Me (Pigeon Press, 2011), and her essays have been published in The New York Times, Newsday, and dozens of other publications for which she has received several awards.
Widowed in 2006, Scibelli writes, “While I was waiting for his death to sink in, I’d sit on the floor of my closet, talking directly to my husband’s shirts and pants. They were unresponsive, but I knew in my heart that his Dockers missed me very much, too.”
Scibelli is a member of the New York Friars Club, an association of comedians and celebrities, where she heads the “Meet Your Fellow Friars” committee and writes for their newsletter, Friars Epistle.
Open to the public, tickets are $35 per session and available online at www.griefconvention.com. Carol Scibelli can be reached at www.carolscibelli.com.
