This is the most personal story I’ve ever performed. And somehow got some of the biggest laughs I’ve ever received. Thank god for a rowdy New York audience!
After a long wait, here it is. My newest video for the one and only NPR Snap Judgment. This is a true story about my great-grandma, my wife, and reproductive rights across generations…
And that’s why she’s the champ.
Much love to all the strong women who raised me (Grandma Dorothy, Mama Debbie, Aunt Fran), to the original rebel queen of the family (Great-Grandma Barbara), to my great midwife wife (yes, Esther, you deserve multiple shout-outs!), and to whatever future female Healeys come down the road.
Whoops, maybe I should have given that last one a spoiler alert.
Oh well. If you’ve read this far, you know the deal. Now go share this video with all the young men (and women) in your life, donate to Planned Parenthood, and tell Tez Cruz and his squad to sit the fuck down.
