A 60-minute stand-up show about all things Israel.


Comedy, cooking demonstrations, and an onstage interview with Israeli chef and Chopped! champion Einat Admony, based on the cookbook they co-wrote, Balaboosta.


Part stand-up act, part interactive theatre in which Joel creates healthy conversation about our relationship with Israel.
