Hi. Welcome to my website. Thanks for stopping by.

A little bit about me - I started performing stand-up comedy about a decade or so ago, but I've been funny for much longer than that.  Doing stand-up in a club was on my bucket list for a long time. When I was a newlywed living in Queens, I saw an ad for looking for comics who wanted to enter the Jewish Week's annual funniest Amatuer Jewish Comic in New York contest. I entered, had a great time on stage, and started appearing in small shows at clubs in New York City. The next year, I entered the contest again, and won!! 

Since then, I've been performing regularly at themed comedy nights, fundraisers for non-profit organizations, shul events, and private get togethers.  My stand up is clean, and appropriate for religious audiences. (If you want to hear my off-color jokes, ask me privately!) I perform for both all-women and co-ed audiences. 

When I made aliyah with my husband and children, I thought that it might mean the end of my comedy career. But nope! Surprisingly, I have found many outlets for comedy in Israel as well! 


In addition to funny, I can also bring the serious, and I regularly speak to audiences about the serious side of humor.

Previous speaking topics include:

 

  • Laughter from a Torah Perspective

  • The History of Jewish Humor

  • Why Jews Love to Laugh

That's about it. Be in touch if you have any questions or want to talk  about planning an event.

Lchaim!

Joan
