Christmas (a.k.a. “the Christian Chanukah”) is upon us and JEWMONGOUS is gonna party like it’s the 1999th-iversary of Christ’s bar mitzvah. Featuring his new song “Jesus Christ’s Bar Mitzvah” and orginal favorites like “Taller Than Jesus”, “They Tried To Kill Us (We Survived, Let’s Eat)” and “Phantom Foreskin”, Sean Altman’s beloved comedy song concert returns to City Winery on the biggest going-out night of the year for Jews: Christmas Night, December 25th.
Ex-Rockapella star Sean Altman’s comedy song concert JEWMONGOUS is “tuneful and sharply witty” (Los Angeles Times), “relentlessly clever” (Chicago Tribune) and “bawdy with a wicked modern streak” (Washington Post), combining “the tunefulness of the Beatles and the spot-on wit of Tom Lehrer” (Boston Globe). Altman, who “writes hilarious and irreverent acoustic rock songs about his awakening Jewish awareness” (Jerusalem Post), founded Rockapella and led that group through its heyday years on the Emmy-winning PBS-TV series “Where In The World Is Carmen Sandiego?”, for which Altman co-wrote the famous theme song.
JEWMONGOUS is not appropriate for children unless you’re training them to be sailors.
