City Winery & Joel Chasnoff Present: 5th Annual Christmas Eve for the Jews
About Christmas Eve for the Jews
JOEL’S COMEDY: JEWISH HUMOR, REDEFINED Joel Chasnoff is not your grandfather’s Jewish comedian.
Joel is clever. Hip. Daring and edgy, yet 100% clean. From his stint on the Solomon Schechter basketball team to his tour of duty in the Israeli Army, nothing escapes Joel’s sharp wit. Audiences across the spectrum of knowledge and observance find Joel’s humor uplifting, powerful, and hilarious.
Joel performs in North America, Europe, and Israel, including the Montreal Comedy Festival, Israeli late-night TV, multiple appearances on NPR and PBS...plus, more than 1,000 Jewish events, and counting. In 2010, Simon and Schuster published The 188th Crybaby Brigade, Joel’s comedic memoir about his service in the Israeli Army. Kirkus Reviews called Crybaby Brigade, “Horrifyingly hilarious.”
