Comedy Showcase: Avi Liberman on Jewish Holidays and Traveling to Israel


Avi Liberman spends a lot of time recruiting American stand-up comics to travel to Israel with him twice a year to perform comedy shows in support for the Koby Mandell Foundation

We have posted excerpts of some of the shows over the last few years featuring a variety of comedians that Avi accompanied to Israel, most of them visiting Israel for the first time.

But the Israeli-born and Texas-raised Liberman is a stand-up comedian on his own, and his family-friendly performances have special appeal to Jewish audiences.
 
Here is one of his routines, as delivered to a very responsive Jewish audience at the City Winery in New York,  explaining Jewish holidays to gentiles, and making funny observations about flying to Israel and buying Marzipan rugelach in the market.

Enjoy!
