Rising young comedian Moshe Kasher is lucky to be alive. He started using drugs when he was just 12. At that point, he had already been in psychoanlysis for eight years. By the time he was 15, he had been in and out of several mental institutions, drifting from therapy to rehab to arrest to...you get the picture. But Kasher in the Rye is not an "eye opener" to the horrors of addiction. It's a hilarious memoir about the absurdity of it all.
"An entirely difference"
Before his 1-hour Netflix special and autobiographical book, Moshe Kasher was just an Oakland, CA comic who was getting roasted and toasted by the internet - and returning the favor. Kasher delves into the dark world of YouTube comments and offers the unique perspective of a Jewish kid raised by deaf parents in crack-ridden Oakland, CA. The results are both unique and astonishing.
Oakland-bred comic and best-selling author Moshe Kasher comes back to the Bay Area in this standup special. Back on his home turf, Kasher finds comedy in these uproarious stories about the people he's met and how they see him.
