Among all the Jewish stand-up comedians whose performances we've posted, Orthodox comedians are rare. But over the years we've found and shared routines by modern Orthodox and Chassidic comedians. They include Elon Gold, Modi, Mendy Pellin, David Finkelstein, and others.
One of our goals at Jewish Humor Central is to offer a stage for new Jewish comedians to entertain you. This week we're featuring Yosef Golubchik, a young modern Orthodox comedian from Highland Park, New Jersey. Yosef has performed at comedy clubs in New York. He's married with three young children and enjoys making people laugh.
Yosef has used his comedic talents to host a fundraiser event at Yeshiva University. He'll be on his way to Israel soon to staff a Birthright trip and we're sure he'll find a way to bring his routines to comedy clubs in Israel.
Here's a video of Yosef performing at the Village Lantern comedy club in New York's Greenwich Village.
