YidLive! – Chutzpah in the Fleish!
Come close out the VJFF with a night of laughter, narishkayt and even a bisl music with the co-creators of the most successful Yiddish web series of the last 1000 years.** Watch self-proclaimed IJI’s (International Jewish Icons) Jamie Elman (Chaimie) and Eli Batalion (Leizer) do their shtick while screening from their catalogue of chutzpahdike videos, including brand new material from Season 3.
***Knowledge of Yiddish NOT required, however kvetching is encouraged.***
But don’t take their word for it:
I don’t think it’s overstating things to call YidLife Crisis the most important thing to happen to the Yiddish language since the end of WWII. Baruch Hashem for these geniuses. And if you don’t like them, gai cocken offen yam.” – R.T., New Jersey
“Just call them my Canadian Fatwah Brothers” – Salman Rushdie, Hiding, USA
Time: 90 minutes
Rating: Expect Chutzpah.
** Fine, at least top 10 Yiddish Web Series. Everyone’s a critic.
