Hybrid Hybrid Event
Comedian Joel Chasnoff

Joel Chasnoff redefines the meaning of Jewish comedy. The stand-up comic, TV and podcast host, and bestselling author is a rare comedic voice. He has opened for Jon Stewart on tour and is a veteran of the Israeli Army. Chasnoff’s hilarious take on Jewish life is clean, hip, and wonderfully original. No wonder “The Forward” calls him “the comedic voice of his generation.”

About the Guest

Joel Chasnoff is not your grandfather’s Jewish comedian! An accomplished author and former IDF combat soldier, Joel has performed his unique brand of uplifting, positive Jewish comedy for more than a thousand audiences in North America, Israel, Australia, and Europe. Unlike other Jewish comedians, Joel’s humor is not based on stereotypes. From his stint as the starting center on his Jewish day school basketball team to his year as a tank gunner in the IDF to the challenges of raising a Jewish family today, Joel leaves no stone of our Jewish lives unturned.

He is also the author of three books, including the comedic memoir “The 188th Crybaby Brigade,” about his year as a tank gunner in the Israeli army; the cookbook “Balaboosta,” co-written with Israeli chef Einat Admony; and “Essential Tennis,” the best-selling tennis improvement manual he wrote with coach Ian Westermann.
