Comedy Showcase: Meet Erez Ben-Ari, Israeli Stand-up Comedian


Erez Ben-Ari has a day job in computer security technical support, but at night he entertains at clubs in the Seattle-Tacoma area of Washington.

As an Israeli working in the USA, his routine is built around being an alien of sorts, difficulties that locals have in pronouncing his name, Israeli eating patterns, and the lack of subtlety of Israeli employers in giving notice to their workers.

Here's a video clip of Ben-Ari performing at the Maple Valley Creative Arts Center last August.  Enjoy!
