Comedian Steve Solomon's Jewish Grandmother Teaches Kosher Laws to His Italian Mother


Steve Solomon is one of America's best story tellers and dialecticians. He delivers his comedy built around the premise that his mother is Italian and his father is Jewish. That's the perfect setup for delivery of a barrage of nonstop jokes and situations involving multiple dialects.

We saw his show My Mother's Italian, My Father's Jewish, and I'm in Therapy in Florida in February. The show originally opened off-Broadway in 2006, and he has been performing it in many locations ever since.
 

His show has been called one part lasagna, one part kreplach and two parts Prozac. Solomon wrote and stars in this one-man show, combining comic voices, sound effects and astounding characterizations to tell stories of the wacky side of the human condition.

In this excerpt he tells about how his Jewish grandmother tried to teach his Italian mother the rules of keeping kosher.

Enjoy!
