Comedian Benji Lovitt has been delivering standup comedy ever since he made aliyah to Israel from his native Texas nine years ago.
His humor has spanned performances in comedy clubs in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, entertaining groups visiting Israel, acting in an improv comedy troupe, posting hilarious comedy skits on YouTube, writing funny and satiric columns for Israeli newspapers, and presenting a program on exploring Israeli history through comedy.
In this video clip, Benji was interviewed by an Israeli TV reporter on the subject of Jewish and Israeli humor.
