News and Reviews for this Show

August 7, 2022    On The Mic

Ivor Dembina agrees to perform a comedy fundraiser to help pay for a new synagogue roof.

But what does the Rabbi think of Dembina’s old Jewish jokes?

This show quietly sets about defending freedom of speech, while exploring one Jewish man’s relationship with his own community.

There are, of-course, old Jewish jokes a-plenty, including a few gags that the Rabbi definitely doesn’t approve of. This largely Jewish audience loves every second of it. Among the Jewish mother-in-law quips, Dembina has jokes on Israel and Palestine, on the subject of Jews and money, and, most challenging to the Rabbi, The Holocaust.

Only exceptional comedians get away with this stuff. Here, the experienced Dembina is in complete control.

If you’re good enough a comedian and if the joke is funny enough, it turns out that you can say anything nowadays. Click Here For Review
