After doing standup comedy and sketches in Montreal for ten years, comedian Adam Susser dropped in on Shaar Hashamayim, an orthodox synagogue located in Westmount, an upscale neighborhood, to interview his bubbie and her friends at a party for seniors in the shul.
Shaar Hashamayim, founded in 1846, is Canada's oldest and largest traditional shul. Every Wednesday, seniors gather for a day of singing, Bingo, lunch, and discussions of current events.
Adam sang and danced for them and asked some of them if they would like to be interviewed. They were all told that he was doing a satirical comedy piece. Not only did he find some willing and eager participants, but some of the seniors wanted to get wild on camera. There was one woman who told him she wanted to talk about love.
Montreal Jewish Seniors Gone Wild? Maybe not exactly, but funny and endearing nonetheless. Enjoy!
