Peter Fogel wants to give Phoenicians a laugh heading into 2022. The pandemic has made it feel like “two years that everyone lost their lives,” he said. “People are looking to laugh. They got to get back to their lives.” Fogel is the star of “My Mother’s Italian, My Father’s Jewish & The Therapy Continues,” which began a four-week run at the Herberger Theater Center Dec. 29.
