Hi – I’m a 62-yr old lefty comedian, my Dad was at Cable Street, and I’m definitely coming to the gig on October 1st. I’ve told Jewdas I want to do some comedy there and had no reply. Nu?
hey Gerry – that sound great. We’ll put you down for a 10 minute slot on the night, looking forward. Email us if you need more details email@example.com
From 6,000 miles away, some of us in L.A. will be joining you in spirit. We’ll be drawing a line historically from the hero-martyrs Hirsh Lekert (Vilne) and Naftoli Botwin (Warsaw) — my namesakes — to the fighters of the Botwin Company of the International Brigades and the heroes of the Warsaw Ghetto…to the Cable Street militants. ¡Salud! Foroys!
Are you looking for musicans to join in? I have an alto sax I could bring along.
You guys should check out Yiddish Twist Orchestra, saw them at Thames Festival they were fantastic
I hope you’re going to review my new book: The Wandering Who.
I hope so too Gilad. Me mam sent me a copy the other day after seeing you at the Scarborough jazz festival. I’m not a big reader but your book certainly passes the dip test, as in no matter where you open the book the contents draw you in, and before you know it the jewish jigsaw begins to reveal itself, free from the zionist psycho babble the world has come accustomed to. I’m looking forward to the next few days of learning and encourage everyone who visits this site to indulge themselves in reading this book.
Please will Jewdas put up a review page so we can have a full on, no holds barred, discussion on the ‘The Wandering Who’. Cheers tim
