Annual Comedy Cabaret

Smart, hip comedy featuring Tony V, Dan Naturman, Dan Crohn

Leventhal-Sidman JCC, Saturday, January 17, 2015 (8pm)

In 1986 Tony V (pictured) was named “Funniest Person in Massachusetts” by Showtime television. He quickly rose to national headliner status as he performed on HBO, Comedy Central, Late Night with Conan O’Brien, A&E and MTV. Along with being a popular headliner at clubs and colleges throughout the world, Tony V has worked with Jay Leno, Dennis Miller, Bobcat Goldthwait, Steven Wright, and Adam Sandler.  
 
Dan Naturman is known to his fans as the “real winner” of Last Comic Standing 2, and was the favorite of celebrity judges Drew Carey and Brett Butler. Dan’s charming combination of self-deprecation and outright grouchiness has had audiences howling from coast to coast and has earned him spots on NBC’s Last Comic Standing (seasons 2 and 7), the Late Show with David Letterman, Late Night with Conan O’Brien, and Comedy Central.
 
Dan Crohn has been performing stand-up comedy in and around Boston for years. A semi-finalist in the Boston Comedy Festival and the Laughing Skull Festival, his stories of family and friends have entertained audiences throughout New England.

Israeli Stage presents Never Ever Ever

Written by Sivan Ben Yishai, Starring Jordan Ahnquist

Leventhal-Sidman JCC, Monday, February 9 (7:30pm)

This touching portrayal of a teenage boy dealing with dyslexia was the winner of four Israeli Assitej Awards in 2013. Yoni runs away from school, from home, from himself. He runs away the moment he’s confronted with the words disabled or dyslexic. In this moving, one-man play, Ben Yishai provides the audience an experience of what it’s like to feel like an outsider, feeling different, being differently-abled, yet, at the same time whole.  Show is performed as a staged reading.
 
Israeli Stage is dedicated to exposing audiences to the works of Israeli playwrights, offering high-quality artistic, apolitical programming to help promote Israeli culture in a meaningful way.

All JCC arts and humanities offerings are programs of the Ryna Greenbaum JCC Center for the Arts. 
 
Co-sponsored by Gateways, Jewish Big Brother Big Sister, JCC Inclusion and Support Services, Jewish Vocational Service, and Yachad.
