Sean Altman is a nice but naughty Jewish boy who likes poke gentle fun at his tribe with his alter ego, Jewmongous. If you happen to be of the chosen flock yourself, you’ll probably get a lot of yuks out of his jokes. Even if you’re not–and among the ‘goyem,’ as they say–his material is universal enough for everyone to appreciate. There’s definitely a lack of funny Jewish holiday songs to go around, so Altman does a mitzvah by helping fill the gap.
