Rabbi Bob Alper yucks it up in his comedy tour

Rabbi Bob Alper

There’s a reason why Sirius/XM satellite radio plays Rabbi Bob Alper’s comedy bits several times daily, often sandwiched between Bob Newhart and Bill Cosby: Bob’s unique background…he’s an ordained rabbi who served congregations for fourteen years and holds a doctorate from Princeton Theological Seminary…prepared him well for a twenty-four year comedy career with wonderfully unique material presented in a way that’s intelligent, sophisticated, and 100% clean.

And so it’ll be 90 minutes of non-stop laughter on Sunday, November 21st, when “the world’s only practicing clergyman doing stand-up comedy…intentionally,” returns to Annapolis in a program open to the entire community.  (People brand Bob’s shows as “Gentile friendly.”)

The New York Times put it succinctly:  Bob “…had the audience convulsing.”   The Chicago Tribune described Bob’s act as “Hilarious. Relaxed, clean, unhurtful.  A warm type of humor.”

Bob’s fresh, contemporary, and totally “unorthodox” style has been delighting audiences from Hollywood’s IMPROV to The Montreal Comedy Festival and Muslimfest 2009 (this is not a joke). And his unique brand of humor appeals to everyone – synagogue or church crowds, corporate events, colleges, and theatres throughout North America and London!

For a taste of Bob’s humor, take a gander at this 4 minute video!

Program begins at 4:00 pm,  Sunday, November 21st.
Congregation Kol Shalom is located at 1909 Hidden Meadow Lane, Annapolis
Tickets are $18 in advance and $22 at the door.
Information and tickets:  410-266-6006 .  Adults and children 11 and over are welcome.
