"In these turbulent times we could sure use a laugh or two. So have I got a show for you. A highly amusing show....that moves at a cracking pace. " Sydney Arts Guide.
"A welcome light relief.... with more vignettes you can poke a schtick at, targeting schmucks, schnooks, schlemiels, and shiksas, mishegoss, mammas and mish-mosh, You Don't Have to Be Jewish is a rollicking relic of vaudeville and the Borscht Belt where corn is made kosher and the zingers are on Zimmers." Australian stage.
"Most of all they make people laugh. They laugh because the scripts are funny. They laugh because the cast understands and captures the right intonations and timing. They laugh because the characters depicted are universal so ‘you don’t have to be Jewish’ to recognise them." Stage Whispers Magazine.
First recorded in 1965 the album includes timeless sketches and songs. Meet our stars.
