CHUTZPAH FOR THE HOLIDAYS
Singer and stand-up comic Jackie Hoffman is the female Jim Carrey (except for the whole movie-star thing), as shes built quite a career on her ability to contort her facial features. As a Joes Pub regular, Hoffman has also delighted Jews and goyim alike with her original holiday songs like, Its Shavuos—quite possibly the first-ever satirical tune about the oft-overlooked holiday. In Scraping the Bottom: Special Holiday Edition, Hoffman will perform some of her greatest seasonal hits. Apparently, if I dont do a show around the Christian holidays, homosexuals all over the city kill themselves, she explains, so I thought it was a public service to mankind.
