Event Description: 

A Rabbi Walks into A Bar…But Tells Only Clean Jokes

Bob Alper is the world’s only practicing clergyman doing stand-up comedy… intentionally. He performs internationally, from The Hollywood IMPROV to London theatres, has appeared on Comedy Central, Good Morning America, and Showtime, and was featured on T.V.’s EXTRA.

Bob (and please call him “Bob” or “Rabbi Alper;” anything other than “Rabbi Bob”, which he says, is “too nauseatingly cute”) earned a B.A., rabbinic ordination, as well as a doctoral degree, and served congregations for fourteen years. All of this, naturally, prepared him for a successful career as a stand-up comic.

Tickets are $25/person, students are free. Purchase tickets online at, or RSVP to Jane Dubro at [email protected].
