Seems like just yesterday we all bit the seven-episode Netflix series Pretend It’s A City by Fran Lebowitz.
Now you can turn off the tube and see them live.
In 2022 and 2023, Lebowitz is bringing her infamous offering to eight venues across the United States as part of her ongoing speaking tour.
From December through April, the quintessential New Yorker will hit locations outside of Manhattan like Newark, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Boston and Scottsdale to name a few.
Best of all, some tickets can be snagged at Vivid Seats for as little as $39 before fees.
And while we’d love to shower you with promotional quotes from Lebowitz’s social media — she doesn’t have any.
In fact, the feisty New York institution is “famously tech-resistant” and reportedly doesn’t own a cellphone, computer, or even a typewriter.
So to really get the full Ms. Lebowitz effect, you have to see her live.
Here’s how you can achieve that.

How to stream Fran Lebowitz movies and shows
Lebowitz fans, don’t worry.
There are many ways to catch Fran on film—although she may never see the programs herself.
First up, we recommend the groundbreaking “Pretend It’s A City”. Decider gushed that “Lebowitz is hilarious and (co-star/series director Martin) Scorsese captures her humor and love for New York City very well.”
If you’re still here, you might want to go back further to watch Scorsese’s standalone 2010 Lebowitz-centric documentary, Public Speaking.
Finally, don’t miss her sardonic role as Judge Janice Goldberg on NBC’s Law and Order. You can stream all episodes of the long-running trial here.
