Christmas for the Jews
  • Following sold-out shows in 2016 and 2017, Joel Chasnoff's Christmas for the Jews returns to City Winery Chicago with special guests Moody McCarthy and Rabbi Barry Schechter. A Chicago native, Chasnoff is the author of the comedic memoir The 188th Crybaby Brigade about his service in the Israeli Army. He has performed on stage and screen in nine countries, including two off-Broadway shows, a USO comedy tour of Japan and Korea, more than 1,000 Jewish events in North America and Europe, and Israeli late-night TV. A graduate of I.O. (formerly Improv Olympic) in Chicago and UCB and The PIT in New York, Chasnoff regularly performs improv and teaches his Improv Comedy 101 Workshop to adults and teens. A portion of proceeds from Chasnoff’s comedy and book sales is donated to his foundation, Project Elijah.
