HOW TO EN­SURE IT’S ALL RIGHT ON THE NIGHT

The Jewish Chronicle - - NEWS -

CO­ME­DIAN Mark Maier gives some tips:

Do it in English. Don’t throw in the odd He­brew word like in a ser­mon or you’ll lose them.

Don’t be tempted to raise your voice if you see any­one nod­ding off — it’s not a con­gre­ga­tion.

You may be se­ri­ously heck­led. Don’t have a pre­pared re­sponse, try to be spon­ta­neous.

Pray for a full house, or fail­ing that, at least enough for a minyan.

And try this gag: “A lot of my con­gre­ga­tion have left to be­come Quak­ers. In fact, some of my best Jews are Friends…” Mark Maier per­forms at JW3 on Novem­ber 28
