The Red Light Podcast is comprised of Ricki Sofer & Gina Savage !
Two ladies found themselves thrust together each week in the subterranean underbelly of the Greenwich Village Comedy Club discussing comedy (go figure), comedians, pop culture, men, sex, politics, love, life...and death.
A natural, flowing rapport developed; with each woman bringing her own unique background, perspective and experience to the subject matter.
It was mutually decided to take these
weekly conversations to a wider forum.
The result is The Red Light podcast which features all of the above topics and special guests (with special needs :) ).
Ricki Sofer is a stand up comedian currently living in New York City. Ricki started her comedy career in Los Angeles and has performed at the Hollywood Improv, Laugh Factory, The Comedy Store, Ha Ha club & The Ice House Comedy club. She has written her own column for Shavua Israeli- the most recognized Jewish mag in LA.
Originally from Israel, Ricki is a graduate of Emek Izrael Film School and served in the Israeli military police in a special unit which allowed her to wear her own pink clothing line instead of the dreadful army uniform. She speaks English with a pretty good American accent, which confuses her audience, until her world views make it clear that she's definitely not from here. She talks about life situations that most people never encounter and definitely don't want to. Comparing where she came from to living in La La Land made her realize how an American life makes for a really good joke.
Gina Savage is an actress, comic, producer & talent manager with a rich history in the entertainment business. Beginning in 1996 , she served as an assistant to Caroline Hirsch and Louis Faranda at Carolines. From there, she was recruited by Barry Katz to book and manage his highly regarded Boston Comedy Club. Later, Savage ventured into television production; working on reality shows "The Apprentice" and "The Contender". Today, Savage manages Al Martin's Broadway Comedy Club, Greenwich Village Comedy Club and New York Comedy Club. In her spare time (what spare time?) this native new yorker enjoys going to museums, walks in the park, strolls on the beach, Dalai Lama quotes and your undivided attention.
