Belly Laughs - Comedy that cooks

Saturday, December 9, 7:30 p.m.

Celebrate Israel @ 70 through comedy and food!
Cooking demonstration/tasting and comedy event with Joel Chasnoff and Einat Admony

Comedian Joel Chasnoff and two-time Chopped champion Israeli chef Einat Admony join forces to present Belly Laughs, a delicious and entertaining evening. Enjoy Joel’s comedy followed by him welcoming Einat on stage for a light-hearted interview about her journey from Tel Aviv to Manhattan and the challenges of being an Israeli woman in the male dominated culinary scene, along with a cooking demonstration and a no-holds-barred Q&A.

Their comic/chef collaboration began with Balaboosta, an award-winning cookbook featuring Admony’s Mediterranean recipes infused with Chasnoff’s comedic touches. Admony is a Tel Aviv native, James Beard finalist and owner of several highly regarded restaurants in New York City. She beat celebrity chef Bobby Flay on his own show Throwdown with Bobby Flay. Comedian and Chicago native Joel Chasnoff is a former IDF combat soldier and wrote his comedic memoir The 188th Crybaby Brigade about his service in the Israeli Army. He has performed on stage and screen in nine countries, including two off-Broadway shows.
