You've heard about the Jewish American Princess, but you haven't seen anything until you've met Dalia, the (we hope not typical) Israeli) character who has her own ideas about politeness and acceptable behavior in public.
Dalia may not be the typical Israeli, but if you've spent any time there, it's likely that you've met her or someone very much like her. Dalia is the creation of Deb Kaye, one of the principal performers in the Jerusalem-based HaHafuch comedy and improv troupe that we've featured many times on Jewish Humor Central.
This time Deb has gone out on her own to produce a series of skits called Rega Israel. Rega is the most popular saying in Israel, literally meaning "Just a minute." It's now a new comedy web series offering a taste of funny happenings in Israel, viewed through the perspective of satire and parody.
This skit takes place in an Israeli coffee shop where Dalia doesn't hesitate to sample other people's food or comment and complain about virtually everything.
