Comedy Showcase: Modi On Stage In Montreal: A Jew Walks Into Home Depot...

Meet Modi Rosenfeld, professionally known as Modi.  He's not a newcomer to stand-up comedy, nor to acting on TV.  But we at Jewish Humor Central hadn't heard of him until he surfaced in a funny video about two Hassidic screenplay wannabes looking for Spielberg that we found and ran as a blog post in November.

Modi has performed at Caroline’s on Broadway, The Comedy Cellar, Comic Strip Live and The Gotham Comedy Club. Modi has appeared on HBO’s The Sopranos, The Howard Stern Show, NBC’s Friday Night Videos, BET’s 10th Anniversary of Comic View, METRO Channel’s New Joke City with Robert Klein, and on Comedy Central’s USO Tour Live from Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. 

On film, Modi has appeared in the independent features, "Rubout," "Little Kings," "Connecting Dots" and Rent-a-Husband with Chevy Chase and Brooke Shields. In print, Modi has been featured in Lifestyles Magazine, We the People, and has been a contributor to Fashion Police in US Magazine.

If you're involved in planning a comedy night or comedian-in-residence for your synagogue or organization, Modi is available for these events.

In the video clip below, Modi is on stage in Montreal doing his stand-up routine.  The "Jew walks into Home Depot" bit begins at 5 minutes and 45 seconds into the act.  But it's worth waiting for.
