Comedy: Nice Jewish Girls Gone Bad

By Maija Zummo · August 27th, 2009 · CityBeat Recommends

This traveling burlesque road show is like mixing your meat and dairy — it’s so bad, it’s good — cramming comedy, music and a bunch of loud Jewish girls onto one stage with some flashy costume changes. Started in 2003, originally as an event for the Jewish magazine Heeb, Nice Jewish Girls Gone Bad boasts, “gals who learned to smoke at Hebrew School, got drunk at their Bat-Mitzvahs and would rather have more schtuppa than the chupah.” Their chosen ringleader, Susannah Perlman from Last Comic Standing, will lead you through an evening of raunchy humor, bawdy musical numbers and the destruction of tradition with comedians Cynthia Levin, Ophira Eisenberg and Sister Schmaltz.

They dress up like dreidels, reject gefilte fish and there might even be a Hasidic striptease. It’s probably inappropriate for the religious and those under 18. 8 p.m. at the Southgate House. $12-$15.
