Purim Like You’ve Never Seen It

Tuesday, 23 February 2010

What do you get when you take a bunch of Jewish comedy writers and ask them to reimagine Purim with a bit of pop culture, satirical levity, and respectful irreverance?

You get The Shushan Channel.

For the 8th consecutive year, the NYC Purim scene will be taken by storm by this creative endeavour. Directed by Mike Shapiro, and headlined by Lizz Winstead, (co-creator of The Daily Show and creator of Shoot the Messenger), this year’s cast includes actors and writers from The Daily Show, The Tonight Show With Conan O’Brien and 30 Rock. Special appearance by 30 Rock’s Scott Adsit (10pm show only), a video presentation by Joel McHale, AND a surprise message from a star of The Tonight Show.

This year’s skits include Persia Shore. Flight of the Conquereds. Glee-vey! Glenn Beck, Harry Potter & Facebook – ancient Persian style! Want the inside scoop?

Still not convinced?

Tickets are available exclusively at the 92nd St. Y. They WILL go fast…so don’t delay.
