Honorary Mayors

Billy & Janice Crystal


For certain, none of the former 29 honorary mayors needed an introduction.

Such is the case with Honorary Mayor Number 30…..Billy Crystal.  Movies, plays, concerts, directing, voice-overs, hosting Oscar telecasts, cheering for his favorite sports teams.  (He loves dem New York Yankees and the L.A. Clippers).  And then there’s Comic Relief, raising lots of money for the homeless in the U.S.

For the first time ever in Pacific Palisades, the new honorary mayor will have a Co-Honorary Mayor.  Who better than producer, actress, wife Janice Crystal?

The Crystals have been married 48 years.  They have 2 daughters.
