Comedian Richard Lewis

With Mike Jacobs

Leventhal-Sidman JCC, Saturday, November 1 (8pm) and Sunday, November 2 (2pm)

Perhaps Mel Brooks put it best when he said, “Richard Lewis may just be the Franz Kafka of modern day comedy.”
Comedy Central has recognized Richard Lewis (pictured) as one of the top 50 stand-up comedians of all-time. GQ Magazine named Lewis one of the ‘20th Century’s Most Influential Humorists.’ Lewis has taken his lifelong therapy fodder and carved it into a commanding, compelling art form. Lewis remains addicted to performing before live audiences and is on a continuous Tracks of My Fears stand-up tour. In live performance he is often compared to a jazz musician for his wild riffs that fly out into space but always find a way to float back into rhythm as they splatter recurring themes against a spiraling, lyrical backdrop. Don’t miss this rare Boston appearance!
Mike Jacobs’ edgy brand of autobiographical comedy traces its roots to the north end of Hartford where he was voted “funniest kid” in his 6th grade class. His stories of “life” are hilarious, relevant to everyone…and true. Mike is a regular at the top comedy clubs in New York City.

All JCC arts and humanities offerings are programs of the Ryna Greenbaum JCC Center for the Arts.

NOTE: If you are interested in including this show as part of a subscription package, please call the Box Office at 617-965-5226 before ordering tickets.
