Being Jewish: UK Comedy Edition
March 10, 2021 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm EST
What’s it like being a Jewish comedian on the UK comedy circuit? And how does the Jewish experience inform their comedy?
We’ve convened a panel of Jewish comedians to discuss David Baddiel’s new book ‘JEWS DON’T COUNT’, “a book for people who consider themselves on the right side of history. People fighting the good fight against homophobia, disablism, transphobia and, particularly, racism. People, possibly, like you”.
In this funny, freewheeling conversation DAVID BADDIEL, ANDREA HUBERT, MERYL O’ROURKE, RACHEL CREEGER & PHILLIP SIMON will discuss the specific contours of anti-Semitism, the influence Judaism has had on our comedy culture and whether they’ve faced any obstacles on account of their Jewish identity.
It’ll be chaired by DAVINA BENTLEY.
