“Grew up in Bensonhurst, Brooklyn, NY. I went to med school and became a psychiatrist. Trained at Bellevue Hospital in Manhattan. Practice for 38 years. In 1980 started taking stand-up comedy classes with Lisa Carmel, then with others. Always loved it. Still doing it. My father’s dad was a composer Jacob Weinberg (1879-1956).”
