morning Jew Ep 8 (10/18/2013)


I’m enjoying doing this weekly morning show with my pal NY comic Katie Halper. We review the week’s headlines and ask: Is it good for the Jews? It’s so morning show sometimes you even get a true morning face from me, like in this week’s episode. This week we hit topics from the hugs: how do political parties really work in America to what a good Jerry Seinfeld interview sounds like.

If you want to know if something is good for the Jews, just ask or (more likely) tell us.
The show is at http://morningJewz.com .

10/4/13 Woody Allen is the ultimate shonda, Miley Cyrus and critical history of bras for Jewesses.


Are Woody Allen, Miley Cyrus, Sinead O’Connor or the government shutdown good for the Jews? Show notes.

Also: a special outtake. Heather is busted.

More morning Jew.

Taylor Negron distils Sandra Bernhard’s impact

Great piece by the wonderful comic, writer and director Taylor Negron which captures the best of Sandra Bernhard and her impact. Sandra’s work had a huge influence on me and it’s fair to say that I wouldn’t be performing today if not for her groundbreaking solo show Without You I’m Nothing.

Like many innovators, much of what she did unique and edgy was rooted in the context of the time. Taylor Negron’s piece captures that beautifully. He’s a wonderful performer too. If you get a chance to see him live too, jump at it.

The Oakland Local blog featured an interview with me today featuring my new show in development Everything Is Subject to Change

Also some big news: fabulous theatre that I’ve always wanted to play – Shotgun Players will bring my interactive baking comedy “I Look Like An Egg, but I Identify As A Cookie” back to the Bay Area on April 8th and 9th, 2013. Shotgun Players is an amazing theatre that has a huge following and sells out every show. They do really interesting stuff, really focus on younger and new audiences, keep tickets affordable and do unusually savvy stuff like repaint their entire building with a great design that goes with each major show in their season.

“Cookie” was named Best of the Bay when it originally played in the Bay Area and I’ve since baked over 50,000 chocolate chip cookies in it with people formerly known as the audience.

There are a few sponsorship opportunities to help back the production and after-show receptions and make sure everyone at the show gets fresh cookies. To sponsor “Cookie” please “>send inquiries here.

Other People’s Keys: my story at Litquake 2013


This is about a search for an apartment for when I’m in the US after a time of real disorientation. I think I’ll just let you know the keywords for this story: landlords, hilarious, apartments, keys, cherry tomatoes, flogging.

It’s part of my play in development Everything is Subject to Change. You can subscribe to access all the pieces and be part of the  development process and support me as an independent writer/performer.

Real Winning: My Basketball Redemption Story on CBC’s Definitely Not the Opera

I had another story on CBC’s Definitely Not the Opera which aired across Canada a few weeks ago. For those of you who don’t live in Canada, DNTO is a bit like This American Life, but with shorter stories and more of them. And Canadian towns. This story takes place in Sudbury when I was 12 years old at a Zionist camp. I was obsessed with basketball. And I had a very powerful experience which affected the course of my life as a performer and a person. I learned the power of truth and how a room can change with it. Listen here.
