      Carol Leifer took the business of making people laugh very seriously. As one of stand-up comedy's most original female performers, Leifer did not have to look too hard or too far for material for her act. She made people laugh simply by jokes and sharp observations on subjects close to her heart - her Jewish upbringing, relationship issues, and the wacky incidents that occurred in her daily life. Throughout her career, the renowned comedienne headlined numerous comedy specials including "Caroline Doesn't Leifer Anymore" (Cinemax, 1988), "Carol Leifer Comedy Cruise" (Showtime, 1989), and made frequent appearances on "Comedy Central Presents" (1998- ). As a writer, Leifer lent her comedic genius to many hit shows like "Saturday Night Live" (NBC, 1975- ) and "Seinfeld" (NBC, 1989-1998), starring her former one-time boyfriend, Jerry Seinfeld. Their relationship triggered longtime rumors that the legendary sitcom's Elaine Benes character was based on Leifer, but she later insisted the rumors were untrue. As an author, Leifer composed the entertaining book of essays, When You Lie About Your Age, the Terrorists Win (2009) in which the now 40-year-old came out as gay. Content with her longtime comedic career, a philanthropic Leifer gave Donald Trump a run for his money during her stint on "Celebrity Apprentice" (NBC, 2009- ) in 2010. Throughout her long career -whether by writing scripts or performing on stage - Leifer kept her audiences in stitches decade after decade by staying true to her comedic roots.
