Comedy Showcase: Stand-up Comic Modi on Ashkenazi-Sephardi Differences


Voted one of the top 10 comedians in New York City by the Hollywood Reporter and BackStage, Modi is one of the comedy circuit’s most sought after performers. 

Featured on HBO, CBS, NBC, ABC.Comedy Central, Howard Stern and E! Entertainment, Modi has received rave reviews in the New York Times, Time Out NY and the New York Post.
 
Born in Israel, MODI moved to the United States when he was seven.  After college, MODI worked as an investment banker and had no plans to become a stand up comedian.   But one open mic changed everything.

In this performance at the Comedy Cellar in New York's Greenwich Village, Modi gives a hilarious comparison on differences between Ashkenazic and Sephardic Jews, especially in the ways they pray and read from the Torah.

Enjoy!
