‘Broad City’ Girls Read ‘Wayne’s World’

Party time. Excellent.

On June 3, two of the most beloved women in comedy will be paying tribute to two of the most beloved men in comedy: “Broad City” stars Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer will be performing a reading of “Wayne’s World” in honor of the ’90s comedy film’s 25th birthday.

Glazer, 30, and Jacobson, 33, both Jewish, have been delighting comedy fans for three years as quirky best friends in New York City on the hit Comedy Central show; Season 4 is set to premiere in August.

‘Arrested Development’ Is Returning

Television’s favorite eccentric, dysfunctional, megalomaniac family is returning, and the news is tastier than a Bluth frozen banana.

Sardonic sitcom “Arrested Development” is returning to Netflix for an eagerly awaited fifth season.

Unlike Gob’s magic tricks … this is not an illusion.

Robyn Schall and Friends


Oy Gay!

Named “1 of the top 5 outstanding comics in NY” by, Schall is joined by Corinne Fisher, Naomi Ekperigin, Emma Willmann and Meghan Hanley.


Jon Stewart Back Again

He may have retired from the helm of "The Daily Show", but Jon Stewart is still all over our screens. (And we’re not complaining).

Ari Shaffir, Ben Kronberg, Mara Marek, Andrew Collin


Shaffir, who was raised Orthodox and attended Yeshiva University, describes his comedy as a puppet show, but way filthier and without the puppets. 

Trevor Noah Thanks His Jewish Mom

Mother’s Day is right around the corner and everyone is celebrating the women who gave them life — even celebrities.

For most Jewish thirteen-year-olds, a bad bar mitzvah turn out can be a scarring experience.

For one little kid growing up in South Africa, a low attendance to the customary, coming-of-age Jewish tradition had no bearing on his future success.

Trevor Noah, host of the “Daily Show,” which is viewed by millions of people every night, only had a handful of kids attend his bar mitzvah.

The Ten Cinco De Mayo-mmandments

Like most American appropriated holidays, Cinco de Mayo as celebrated in the U.S. is a far cry from its origins. Ay carumba.

Originally, the date is observed in Mexico to commemorate its army’s unforeseen victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla. For those who live in Mexico, the day is mostly ceremonial and paid tribute to through solemn customs like military parades.
