Alex Edelman: Just For Us is a comedy show that, at first, might not sound very comedic. Edelman's central story is about how he received a wave of anti-Semitic hate from white nationalists on Twitter. Horrified but intrigued, Edelman browsed their Twitter profiles and found out about a meeting these nationalists were hosting in the next borough over. He decided to see what his haters were like when not behind a screen, and whether he, as a light-skinned man, could possibly convince them that Jews aren't all that different from them.
The show is side-splittingly funny, but Edelman also explores the nuances (or lack thereof) within online discourse, his own relationship to Jewishness and whiteness, and how far human empathy can go.
Just For Us had its world premiere in 2018 in Melbourne, Australia and later went up in Edinburgh, Scotland at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, both times to acclaim. Edelman has since performed the show in London, Boston, and Washington, D.C.
The show's first New York run was in winter 2021 at the Cherry Lane Theatre, its second was at SoHo Playhouse, and popular demand earned it a third at the Greenwich House Theater — the three Off-Broadway runs collectively got extended six times.
