Comedy Showcase: Meet Deb Filler, New Zealand's Only Jewish Comic

Deb Filler, New Zealand's only Jewish comic, has toured the world in her funny one-woman shows that are filled with cheeky Jewish humor.

Truly multi-talented, she has worked variously as a comic, a broadcaster, a writer, singer and entertainer. Think of Flight of the Conchords’ only Jewish cousin. Passionate and witty, armed only with her material, Deb has been performing with her keen wit and sensibility for 25 years. 

Deb’s characters’, dynamic presence and engagingly sharp observations have made her an extremely popular performer both live and on television, in Canada (where she lives now) and worldwide. Her solo show, Punch Me In the Stomach sold out throughout the world.

After sold out shows in New York, London, Sydney, Melbourne, Auckland, Montreal, Berlin, Los Angeles, Nelson, Taranaki, Hamilton, Philadelphia, Edinburgh, Toronto, Sao Paulo etcetera, Deb Filler will bring her new show, Well I’ll Tell Ya… to Wellington, New Zealand, for 3 shows only. 

This is a feel-good, full of laughs, character filled, surprise-stuffed gala of joy from one of the world’s greatest storytellers. The show is filled with characters, stories and some of the best Jewish jokes this side of the legendary New York Catskills.

So if you happen to be in New Zealand this weekend (yes, we have readers in New Zealand and 156 other countries) you can get tickets to this show.  Otherwise, you can see some excerpts from the show in the video below.  Enjoy!
