Jackie Hoffman is an actress, a comedienne, and the owner of some of the most flexible facial muscles in entertainment history. If you didn't see her on Broadway as Hairspray's Prudy Pringleton or as The Addams Family's Grandma, there's a good chance you caught her on shows like Curb Your Enthusiasm and 30 Rock, or in movies like Garden State and Kissing Jessica Stein. Or, if you're a Grand Theft Auto fan, you may at least recognize Hoffman's voice -- she plays the evil talk radio personality Mary Phillips.

Beginning next Monday, November 22, Hoffman will be playing herself in Jackie Five-Oh! A Celebration of Jackie Hoffman's First 50th Birthday, a one-woman show at Joe's Pub. She took some time off from preparing for the show, which will run for four consecutive Monday evenings, to enlighten us about her appreciation of big portions, hatred of shellfish, and thoughts about children in restaurants.
