Jewmongous

December 21, 2016 @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm

Tickets $20 advance, $25 door

Rockapella star Sean Altman’s unkosher comedy song concert JEWMONGOUS is “tuneful and sharply witty” (Los Angeles Times), “relentlessly clever” (Chicago Tribune) and “bawdy with a wicked modern streak” (Washington Post), with “hilarious pleasures” (The New Yorker) that combine “the tunefulness of the Beatles and the spot-on wit of Tom Lehrer” (Boston Globe).

Altman, who “writes hilarious and irreverent acoustic rock songs about his awakening Jewish awareness” (Jerusalem Post), is “part of a breed of Jewish hipster comedy that includes Jon Stewart, Sacha Baron Cohen and Sarah Silverman” (Philadelphia Daily News).

His classic Passover song “They Tried To Kill Us (We Survived, Let’s Eat)” has been featured on NPR’s Fresh Air with Terry Gross. Altman has twice performed for The President at the White House Chanukah Party, he has shared concert stages with Billy Joel, Steve Miller, Whoopi Goldberg, Jon Stewart, Jay Leno, Joey Ramone and Moby, and he has recorded with artists as diverse as XTC, John Cale, Richie Havens and They Might Be Giants.

NOTE: JEWMONGOUS welcomes all faiths and creeds but is not appropriate for children unless you’re training them to be sailors.
