Review from Lisa S

Barry Weisenberg, the M.C., was one the funniest guys I've seen.A couple of the comedians were really good and a few were so so. I'm glad I went.

Description

The Hebrew School Dropouts are back with another show chock full of “Kosher Style Comedy.”

Founded by comic Impresario Lee Levine, with Co-Producers Barry Weisenberg and Celeste Davis, Hebrew School Dropouts have been described as “Smart, Fast and Fiendishly Funny!” This ever changing cast of characters features the brightest up and coming comedy acts that skew towards clean and clever will maintaining a hip fresh point of view. Not all the acts are Jewish but all of them are hilarious. Every month features different performers with some of your recurring favorites.

Headliner: Dana Eagle When this petite misfit in dark-rimmed glasses appeared with DL Hughley before an audience of 3,000, she summarized it all: “I used to think I liked myself but then I realized I was just using me to get to someone else.” For Dana Eagle, being a misfit has had its privileges – her self-deprecating, off-beat, and often inspiring humor makes her a hit with college, nightclub, television and concert audiences. Ms. Eagle taps into the place in all of us that continues to feel out of step and alone at the lunch table: “Studies now show that eighty percent of us suffer from depression – and the other twenty percent of you cause it.”

Dana has appeared on Comedy Central’s Premium Blend and Comics Unleashed with Byron Allen. She has had the privilege of entertaining US Troops in Iraq and has appeared at the HBO’s US Comedy Arts Festival. Eagle earned the title of “Best New Comedian” at the Bud Light Ladies of Laughter Competition. Why? Because her humor allows audience members to embrace their feelings of inadequacy and celebrate their own special “Geekdom” and, it comes with a message: Lenscrafters should not be allowed to distribute coupons with fine print on them.

Mo Mandel first attempted stand-up comedy in London in 2004. He moved to San Francisco and was a finalist in the prestigious San Francisco International Comedy Competition in 2006 and was soon touring comedy clubs nation wide with great success. Mo has performed at the nation’s top clubs like Caroline’s, The San Francisco Punchline, Cobb’s Comedy Club, The Gotham, The Seattle Underground and The Hollywood Improv. Mo has also shared the stage with the likes of Dana Carvey, Jim Norton, Patrice O’Neal, Craig Ferguson, and Dave Attell to name a few and appeared on the Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson.  He will appear next season on Comedy Central’s Live at Gotham.

Also appearing: Jon Tomashefsky, Lynn Epstein, Wes Martins, Mike McCulley, Norma Jean with Celeste Davis and Barry Weisenberg.
