Oy, How We Laughed!
Professional stand-up comedian Rachel Creeger explores how Jewish people have used comedy throughout the centuries to combat oppression. From shtetls to suburbs, from ghettos to clubs full of drunken, racist audience members, through performance, writing and TV, we've “turned it and turned it” to feel empowered. Rachel looks at how her peers on the UK comedy circuit have responded to antisemitism and how it's become material. Part performance, part lecture, part discussion.
