After having a successful 40-year career as a clinical psychologist, GEORGE SALTZ came out of retirement to try doing stand-up. He was nearly 80 years old, but the passion had always been there. On March 28, 2014, his story was featured in the Daily News. Whether talking about his early childhood in an Orthodox family, or his work as a psychotherapist, or his observations and encounters with much younger comics, George is a clear crowd-pleaser with audiences of all ages and backgrounds. He is frequently featured at COMIC STRIP LIVE as well as other major comedy clubs in New York and the region. Today he celebrates his 84th birthday and fourth year of performing stand-up comedy.
