Two holiday shows at Rams Head On Stage you might want to catch

| December 20, 2017
Rams Head

Rams Head On Stage is doing something different this year for Christmas and New Years.  If you are not at home with the family on the 25th, Rams Head On Stage might be the place for you with Sean Altman’s JEWMONGOUS! Yes, it’s another comedy show in their wildly successful Laughs and Drafts Comedy Series.

And for New Years–get on your boogie shoes with the ever-fun NRBQ. They are making a not-so-frequent stop in Annapolis and if you are a fan, you know how fun these shows are.  If you are not, you are missing out!

JEWMONGOUS

Ex-Rockapella star Sean Altman’s unkosher comedy song concert Sean Altman’s JEWMONGOUS is “tuneful and sharply witty” (Los Angeles Times), “relentlessly clever” (Chicago Tribune) and “bawdy with a wicked modern streak” (Washington Post), with “hilarious pleasures” (The New Yorker) that combine “the tunefulness of the Beatles and the spot-on wit of Tom Lehrer” (Boston Globe) with a “silky tenor voice that produced chills” (New York Times). Altman, one of “New York’s finest comedians” (New York Times) and “a terrific singer and a songwriter with an ear equally attuned to comic satire and the power of pop music” (The New Yorker), “writes hilarious and irreverent acoustic rock songs about his awakening Jewish awareness” (Jerusalem Post) to make you “laugh your tuchis off” (Time Out) as “part of a new breed of Jewish hipster comedy that includes Jon Stewart, Sacha Baron Cohen and Sarah Silverman” (Philadelphia Daily News). He is a former, founding member of Rockapella and led that pioneering vocal 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. His classic Passover song “They Tried To Kill Us (We Survived, Let’s Eat)” has been featured on NPR’s Fresh Air with Terry Gross. Altman has twice performed for The President at the White House Chanukah Party, he has shared concert stages with Billy Joel, Steve Miller, Whoopi Goldberg, Jon Stewart, Jay Leno, Joey Ramone and Moby, and he has recorded with artists as diverse as XTC, John Cale, Richie Havens, David Yazbek and They Might Be Giants. Altman sings vocal standards at the bedside of hospital patients as a volunteer with Musicians On Call and has performed JEWMONGOUS throughout the USA, Europe, Israel and once in China.
