Special Guest at the Chabad Telethon

Apple and Honey may be the traditional sign that the new year is here, but as of late, you can make a strong argument that it has been replaced.

What is a High Holiday season without the Chabad Telethon? Held last Sunday, the telethon raised millions of dollars for the Chabad organization. But what makes the telethon so unique is their ability to attract “big” name celebrities to perform for the ultra-Orthodox crowd.

And this year was no different. I’m very happy to pass on this video from The Tonight Show, with highlights of Triumph the Insult Comic Dog at the Chabad Telethon. Thankfully for them, yet regrettable for me, Triumph was very, very tame, compared to his usual self.
