He's Back! Standup Comic David Finkelstein: A Guide to Jewish Pre-Marital Relations


David Finkelstein, dressed in black as an Orthodox Jew, was a big hit a few days ago when we posted his standup comedy routine at the Broadway Comedy Club. Since many readers asked for more, we expanded our search and found another one of David's routines with his "Guide to Jewish Pre-Marital Relations."

It appears to be another few minutes taken from the same performance at the Broadway Comedy Club. In this one he veers into a description of the convoluted steps he has to take as an Orthodox Jew operating at the edge of restrictions about touching a female. His advice includes how to sit next to females on the subway and how to interact with cashiers at the store.
"When I go to the store, if the cashier is a female, I'm not allowed to hand her the money, so we don't accidentally touch. Sometimes when I'm horny, I hand her the money so our fingers brush passionately."
We're still trying to track him down and find more of his shtick and backstory. Stay tuned and enjoy!

  1. Great stuff. However, it sure is annoying to hear him say "I'm like...." though, instead of "I said"....
    It's an epidemic that among younger people, verbs have disappeared. But having said that, he is very funny. I like his dead-pan delivery.

  2. Although very entertaining, I do not believe that this guy is actually Orthodox. I found some other youtube skits that he appears in, as part of an L.A improv troupe. He also appeared in a Best Buy commercial a few years ago.
