On June 26 we attended the finals of The Jewish Week's 18th Annual Funniest Jewish Comic Contest at the Broadway Comedy Club in Manhattan.
The contest has been run by Geoff Kole for the last 15 years.Last month we posted the winning routine by George Saltz.
Today we're sharing the standup routine of Mindi Yeger. Mindi credits comedy with giving her the ability to take even a devastating personal situation and laugh about it or in spite of it.
Mindi has been performing in clubs around NYC and figures she will keep getting on stage as long as it’s fun and as long as she stays funny.
In this video clip, Mindi reflects on her life as a former Ultra-Orthodox Jewish mother, her coping with its rules and attitudes towards women, and clears up a misconception about sex.
