In recent years, Yair Nitzani has entertained audiences all over Israel with his intimate and intelligent comedy. He is the host of the weekly television culture show “A Bit High,” and previously hosted the televsion show “Yanshufim,” for which he won the award for “Best TV Show” in 2011 and 2012. From 2003-2005, Nitzani wrote and hosted three seasons of “Ahorei HaChadashot,” or “Behind the News,” which was nominated for “Best Entertainment Show of the Year.” In the past, Nitzani has also joined the judges on “Kohav Nolad,” the Israeli version of American idol. He is the writer of a popular satirical column, “Raising an Eyebrow,” in the daily Hebrew-language newspaper, Israel Hayom, and which led to the publication of a successful book by the same name.
