Last night, stand-up comedy sensation and ghostwriter to the stars Jeremy Moses — otherwise known as our former Editorial Fellow, who’s moved on to bigger and better — had his debut performance. I’m not even going to try to reiterate what he talked about (in the space of four minutes, he covered race relations, kids’ obsession with eating, pornography, and why everybody loves fruit) but you should know, he was a raging success.
Host and M.C. Andrew Singer (who’s also been featured on MJL) captured Jeremy’s performance in pictures. There are no words — which, I guess, is more or less the essence of stand-up comedy — but he captured Jeremy’s very dignified bearing and his wacky facial expressions.
This one is classic. It says like nothing else, “My father is a rabbi.”
This photo, I think, captures the essence of religious performance. More in a Mahalia Jackson way than, well, Moses, but it does the job.
And that face — well, that is just Jeremy. Thank the L-rd.
(And coincidentally, Shemspeed.com reprinted Jeremy’s interview with Shir HaShirim singer Benyamin Brody today! Go check it out — and make sure to follow Jeremy on Twitter.)
