Comedy Showcase: David Moore on Jewish Baseball Cards


Spring is in the air and so is talk about the start of the baseball season. Spring training is just a few days away. We don't know how many Jewish baseball players will be on the field this year, but we thought the timing was right to share a bit of stand-up comedy that David Moore delivered a few years ago at Carolines in New York City.

David Moore is an experienced senior operating executive and transactional entrepreneur with a strong background in direct marketing and service businesses.  Throughout his career, he has held a wide range of leadership and board positions in public, private and not-for-profit organizations. 

In addition to his professional and charitable activities, David is a professional stand-up comedian and he lectures on the subject of using humor as a leadership and motivational tool.  He is the creator and producer of “Funny Business,” and “The Blue Blazer Comedy Tour” a series of sold out comedy shows featuring business themed comedy.  He has headlined at Caroline’s on Broadway and in the New York Comedy Festival, and been featured at The Friar’s Club, Stand-Up New York, and the Comic Strip in New York City, the Improv in Los Angeles and Bocanuts in Boca Raton, Florida.

In this clip, David talks about the 142 Jewish baseball players who appear on baseball cards. Besides Sandy Koufax and Hank Greenberg, how many would you recognize?  Enjoy!
