“You’re Funny But You Don’t Look Jewish was an absolute hit for our Major Donor Appreciation event! Working with Michael, Samson, Gina and Joseph was a pleasure and their act had our audience of all ages in tears of laughter.
This act was not only a clever and engaging promotion of cultural diversity within the Jewish faith, it disproved the stereotype of ‘looking Jewish’ – we are a people of all colors, with different features, from all over the world”

"Bravo! I’ve produced events in our community for over 12 years and this performance stands out as one of the top three. Several days after the performance, folks are still raving about the evening. Besides the warm rapport each comedian established with the audience, the show flowed perfectly from one to the next, without skipping a beat. Michael, Sam, Joe and Gina were an absolute pleasure to collaborate with, offering help, publicity ideas, and were low maintenance. I highly recommend this show to any community in search of a memorable evening which will bring the audience together in laughter and common humanity."

"You're Funny, But You Don't Look Jewish" is a fun and insightful evening of comedy. This is a perfect event to explore topics of assimilation, intermarriage and Jewish identity in a way that is fun, funny and meaningful. Our congregants were chatting for days afterwards about how it changed their perceptions of who is a Jew, and what is Jewish. It's also a hoot."
Congregation Shir Hadash, Los Gatos CA
"The room was filled to capacity! There was non-stop laughter from the start of the show to it's conclusion! Each comedian, with his or her unique style, was great! The night went by too fast for many of us! Bottom line - this is a great event for any community. You will be glad you brought them in. You'll love it!!"

"It was a thrill to meet the "Fab Four" and welcome you to our community. So glad you reached out to us and we were able to make it happen. The timing worked in our favor and all of the comments I heard were so positive! And, I was psyched to see a broad representation of the generations filling the sanctuary...and laughing (not the typical activity one associates with sitting in the pews!)."

"What a great evening we had with “You’re Funny but you don’t look Jewish” comedy night. The place was packed and the comedians were hysterical. We have not had that kind of event in a long time but now it will be an annual event at Temple Israel of New Rochelle. The Jewish comedy and stories were great for all ages and it was great to see congregants both young and old laughing at the same jokes. We cannot wait to have them back."
Temple Israel of New Rochelle, NY
"What an amazing evening of fun, entertainment and laughter. We were thrilled with the comedy troupe You’re Funny, But You Don’t look Jewish who performed before a sold out audience. Their ability to connect, share funny stories, tell plenty of good humored jokes and bring boatloads of smiles to our guests made for 90 minutes of sheer enjoyment – and we made some money taboot. Thanks for bringing your special brand of humor to our city!"
Congregation Beth Shalom, Carmichael CA
"What a great evening. There was laughter all around when each of these four talented performers came on the stage. Better still was the rapport that developed between the audience and each comic. The comedy and stories left the audience wanting even more - a perfect way to end the night. We felt as if we had just spent a lovely time with four new friends. Five Stars."
Contra Costa Jewish Book & ARTS Festival, Walnut Creek CA
“You’re Funny You Don’t Look Jewish” was an awesome way to pack our social hall for an evening of laughter! This unique show addressed topics that aren’t always easy to talk about with ease and humor. Each comedian was distinct and our crowd loved the show. Mike was easy to work with.

"'You're Funny...But You Don't Look Jewish' was one of the most fun events our congregation has hosted in a long time. We had a packed house and so many people of different ages who were all laughing uproariously! Each of the talented comedians tickled our funny bones while they also touched our hearts with their Jewish stories. In addition to generating lots of laughs, this was a wonderful way to create a sense of community and a very easy fundraiser. Run, don't walk, to bring them to your community."
