Comedy Showcase: The Kosher Comedy of Robert Cait


Whenever we find a really funny Jewish comedian who tells clean jokes, we consider it a very good day. So today's a very good day since we came across the comedy of Robert Cait, a Canadian actor and comedian who is fluent in Hebrew and Yiddish and is very aware of the Jewish scene. 

A graduate of The Associated Hebrew Day Schools Talmud Torah in Toronto, Cait has talents beyond stand-up comedy. You've  probably heard his voice in documentaries and TV commercials

From the unaffordable, high cost of Jewish education, to what makes Israelis tick, to bizarre holiday foods, Cait connects with Jewish audiences at their deepest and most hysterical levels. 


Audiences have enjoyed Cait on A&E’s Evening at the Improv and on MTV’s Half Hour Comedy Hour. He has played at The Laugh Factory and The Comedy Store and was the opening act for headliner Dennis Miller’s Las Vegas show. 

In this stand-up segment, Cait includes his observations on how Chabad selects its emissaries, the difference between Christians and Jews, Ronald McDonald and gun use in Israel, how the electrical security fence gets activated on Shabbat, and memories of going to his bubbie's house as a youngster.

Enjoy!
