Years ago, she started hosting Jewish singles parties, in which she would invite unattached men and women to mingle over wine and snacks in her living room. Slonim would kick off the night as MC, breaking the ice with jokes and stories, before wandering the rooms, shaking hands and making sure guests were, if not meeting their future spouses, at least laughing a bit. As the nights got more popular, though, she wanted to improve her MC skills. So she focused her material on what she knew: dating, being a woman, being Jewish. As it happened, comedy would lead her to find her future husband — but not at a singles party. They chatted offstage and, that first night, politely parted ways. That encounter kickstarted a series of serendipitous comedy-club meetings over the following weeks. At one particularly late show, Rosenfeld was scheduled to perform after midnight, while Slonim went on before him. She spent the bulk of her set mocking Rosenfeld for snoozing on a grimy couch in the back room, even taking a picture of him and later posting it to Facebook.
