Audible Editor Reviews

Alternative comedy troupe Un-Cabaret presents four hilarious Hebrews, each with a witty and wise take on growing up Jewish. Weaving together scriptural dogma and screaming laughter, Alan Zweibel opens with "The Day I Got Caught Playing with Myself in Hebrew School", a hormone-tinged paean to his teenaged crush on Sarah, Abraham's wife from the Book of Genesis. Elsewhere, Stephen Glass offers a sarcastic send-up of that most grave cultural betrayal, the Jew-Gentile relationship, while Beth Lapides' "The Ish Factor" examines the bewildering cultural duality whereby Jews simultaneously find themselves a distinct ethnic group - oppressed and persecuted - and part of the white majority. Emmy Award winner Rob Cohen closes things out with the tickling tale of how he ditched his own Bar Mitzvah.

His fiction has appeared in such diverse publications as Mad Magazine, The New Yorker, and The Atlantic. His most recent novel is The Other Schulman.

STEPHEN GLASS ("Hitler's Willing Executioner, Me?") is the author of The Fabulist.

BETH LAPIDES ("The Ish Factor") is host and curator for Un-Cabaret, "Say the Word", and the "Other Network". She is a commentator for NPR's All Things Considered and The Huffington Post. Her first book, Did I Wake You? Haikus for Modern Living was published in November 2006.

    "Desperately Poor"

    I cannot believe the paucity of the humour in this Un-cabaret un-comedy.

    If it were better, it would be mediocre. It sounds like the "comedians" are reading their scripts to a canned audience.
    South Africans would describe this book as "kak".
