Singer/Songwriter, Stand-up Comedy | Saturday, Dec 3, 2016 | 8:30 PM | $17-25
Jewmongous is a comedy-song concert that’s part of a new breed of Jewish hipster comedy. Created and performed by Sean Altman, the golden-voiced song-writing wiz and former leader/founder of Rockapella of “Where In The World Is Carmen Sandiego?” TV -fame (for which Sean wrote the title track with David Yazbek), Jewmongous has drawn press accolades and sold-out audiences in 25 major US cities since its inception in 2006.
Sean was featured in Time Out New York’s cover story “The New Super Jews” and in The New York Times feature about “the Jewish Hipster Movement.” His original songs include the fractured Passover story song “They Tried to Kill Us (We Survived, Let’s Eat),” which was featured on NPR’s Fresh Air with Terry Gross; the Irish drinking-song ode to the infamous Blood Libel “Christian Baby Blood;” the venomous anti-Jews-For-Jesus punk anthem “Jews For Jesus;” the ska-inflected “What the Hell is Simchas Torah?;” the cowboy romp “Long-Tongue Shloime;” the dysfunctional Bar Mitzvah anthem “Today I Am A Man,” and many, many more.
PARENTAL ADVISORY: Sean Altman’s Jewmongous welcomes all faiths and creeds, but due to occasional profanity and adult humor the concert is not appropriate for kids unless you’re training them to be sailors.
