The Chasidic Stand-up Comedy of Mendy Pellin


Back in 2010 we profiled Mendy Pellin, then a 27-year-old full bearded chasidic host of the Mendy Report on chabadtube.com. Since then, Mendy has appeared on TV and in the movies.

In April he ventured into the world of stand-up comedy, debuting his Shalom Bayis tour at the Millennium Theater in Brighton Beach, Brooklyn.

In his routine, Mendy talks about baby sitters and the different routines men and women use in getting dressed for a night out.

(A note for anyone who doesn't understand Yiddish: A kapoteh is the long black coat worn by Chasidim and a gartel is a black sash worn during prayer.)

Enjoy!
