Jewish Comedy with Daniel Lobell (“Reconquistador”) — Fairly A lot Pop: A Tradition Podcast #165


Your hosts Mark, Lawrence, Sarahlyn, and Al discover the char­ac­ter­is­tics of Jew­ish com­e­dy with stand-up/­graph­ic nov­el­ist Daniel, whose movie Recon­quis­ta­dor explores his ances­tors being kicked out of Spain. What’s the con­nec­tion of Jew­ish humor to anti-semi­tism?

We speak about relat­ing as a cre­ator to your iden­ti­ty, Jew­ish peo­ple see­ing them­selves in movie and TV, the expe­ri­ence of lit­er­al­ly see­ing your­self in a movie, Jew­ish com­e­dy as phi­los­o­phy or social com­males­tary, and “Jew­ish humor” vs. humor by peo­ple who hap­pen to be Jew­ish.

We contact on Mel Brooks, Lar­ry David, Adam San­dler, Woody Allen, Lenny Bruce, and fem­i­nist Jew­ish com­e­dy reveals resembling Broad Metropolis, Loopy Ex-Lady­pal, and Inside Amy Schumer.

FYI this was document­ed again in ear­ly Novem­ber when the Gaza conflict and its accom­pa­ny­ing flur­ry of anti-Semi­tism was a bit extra uncooked.
