A Comic's Journey

Real-time dispatches from comedian Joel Chasnoff's popular stand-up tour.

Opening Acts That Are Funny -- Not In A Good Way

Did a show the other night in Cherry Hill, N.J., for Jewish National Fund. No solicitation of funds before or after the performance. Just a heavy reminder that if people don’t contribute, the State of Israel will cease to exist. This is what’s known in the Jewish world as a “soft sell.”

The First Step

I’m writing this blog post — my first in the Comic’s Journey series — from my hotel room at the Airport Sheraton in Tampa.

Last’s night’s show: the Jewish Federation Campaign Kickoff, for 130 people, including seven rabbis and several non-Jews, in the sanctuary of Congregation Rodeph Shalom. I like performing in synagogue sanctuaries.
