    Taking the Long View of, Well, ‘The View’

    Neil Genzlinger

    November 23, 2014: “She was way too divisive and loud among other things,” a commenter using the name juneinct posted in 2013 under an article on Joy Behar leaving The View, the ABC daytime talk show. “If she never appeared in public again, I would be extremely happy.” Well, juneinct, there’s bad news for you at the Cherry Lane Theater. Ms. Behar is appearing in public again, in Me, My Mouth & I, a one-woman show. But don’t worry. This sometimes autobiographical, sometimes stand-up comedy concoction isn’t looking to land you in the audience. True, it is aimed squarely at people who consider The View the height of sophistication, but only at the subset of View fans who admired Ms. Behar, often a polarizing figure during her 16-year run on the program. Ms. Behar knows these people, they know her, and it all makes for a relaxing if nontaxing 90 minutes. After opening with some shameless name-dropping about famous people she encountered on The View, she transitions to her childhood in Brooklyn, one that sounds more or less like every other monologist’s urban childhood, with odd, endearing relatives and religious and ethnic customs and quirks.
