My name is Annie Korzen. My body lives in Los Angeles, but my heart lives in New York. My husband, Benni, is an independent film producer (Babette’s Feast, Forever Plaid) which means he’s often unemployed. I’ve had a modest career as an actress (Doris Klompus on Seinfeld, John Turturro’s mother in Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen). I’ve performed my solo shows Yenta Unplugged and Keep Your Mouth Shut all over the world – which is cool because that means someone else pays for me to travel. I’ve also done smart, witty, sophisticated, humorous, and totally brilliant commentaries for places like The New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, and NPR’s “Morning Edition.” Like my husband, I am often unemployed. None of our creative activities have gotten me or my husband rich, but we’ve had a lot of fun.
