Introducing Belly Laughs

An all-new stage show featuring comedy, cooking demonstrations, and the best darn baklava this side of the Mediterranean Sea.

Joel Chasnoff is a stand-up comic and author of the memoir The 188th Crybaby Brigade. Video clips and bio at

BELLY LAUGHS is a live, 70-minute stage show featuring Joel’s unique brand of uplifting, positive Jewish comedy; a cooking demonstration by Einat; and an onstage interview/Q&A with Einat, conducted by Joel, about what it’s like to be an Israeli female chef in the New York culinary scene.

The show can be adapted into an intimate living room salon or dinner party, called TABLE TALK, for smaller audiences. This format is a great way to thank your biggest donors (and recruit new ones).

“A terrific program! Belly Laughs isn’t just great entertainment—it’s surprisingly meaningful.”

– Rabbi Andrea Steinberger, Hillel at the University of Wisconsin-Madison
