About Alex Edelman: Just For Us at Greenwich House

Join Alex Edelman for an encore performance at Greenwich House!

Just For Us takes us through hilarious anecdotes from Edelman’s life — his Olympian brother AJ, an unconventional holiday season, and a gorilla that can do sign language — but at its center is an astonishing and frighteningly relevant story. After a string of anti-Semitic abuse is directed at Edelman online, he decides to covertly attend a gathering of White Nationalists in New York City and comes face to face with the alt-right abusers. The result is a hair-raising encounter that gives ‘Just for Us’ its title and final, jaw-dropping twist.

Alex Edelman's Just For Us has proven to be just right for everyone, having played multiple sold-out engagements in New York. This stand-up comedy special is now playing yet another extended encore run at the Greenwich House Theater. Get Alex Edelman: Just For Us tickets on TodayTix.

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, a Jewish man, 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. Edelman decided to infiltrate the meeting and 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 packed with laughs and includes other anecdotes about an ASL-fluent gorilla and his Olympic-athlete brother, among others. But with all these stories, Edelman explores the nuance of online discourse (or lack thereof), his own relationship to Jewishness and whiteness, and human empathy.

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. Its first New York run was in winter 2021 at the Cherry Lane Theatre, and its second was at SoHo Playhouse. Now, it's at the Greenwich House Theater through the summer.
