Steve Solomon's one man comedy show My Mother's Italian, My Father's Jewish, and I'm in Therapy has been touring the US since at least 2006 and had an off-Broadway run last year. It's closed now, but we finally got a close look at his shtick in a series of segments from the show that were just posted on YouTube this week.
Solomon created the show and wrote the jokes, but the one man lead has been played by other actors during the show's run. The New York version, clips of which appear below, featured Peter Fogel in the lead (and only) role.
We join the show in a first segment where Fogel is describing his experience on an El Al plane bound for Israel. Enjoy!
