SHOW ME THE FUNNY

My newest article, an account of last week's Funniest Amateur Standup Comic in New York (or something like that) contest, is now online on the Jewish Week website. Click here to read it...

I know what you are thinking: "Esther, why weren't you in the competition?" And it's a good question. The main reason is that, as a regular columnist for the Jewish Week, I was ineligible this year. If I don't have my column next year, then maybe...but I think I will still want to have my column next year, so we'll see.

The most appalling thing about this competition is that there were no women in the finals. There was apparently one woman scheduled to appear, but she canceled. Next year's crop of Jewish comics better include some funny femmes fatales, or I might have to go medieval on standup's ass.

Next week, my Jewish Week column features an interview with Sex and the City scribe/executive producer Cindy Chupack. Fun stuff coming your way, so stay tuned!

Enjoyed the article, Esther.

Second-place finisher Stuart Rappaport predicted a sequel to Mel Gibson’s “The Passion of the Christ”: “It’s called ‘The Pishin,’ and it’s two hours of Mel Gibson suffering with a kidney stone.” Re: this movie, there are a couple UWS filmmakers who are making a "mockumentary" of sorts. I forget the name of it, but the premise of the movie is that Jesus comes back and sees this movie being made about him and is shocked. It sounds like it will be quite funny. They did a scene at Sha'arei Tzedek on 93rd Street a few weeks ago and filled the congregation with extras for Jesus to give a d'var Torah!! Heh...
