Ep. 52 - Jewish Jokes Ft. Raanan Hershberg

You Can't Laugh At That

Racial and religious stereotypes are low-hanging fruit when it comes to comedy, but it doesn't take 8 days to realize there's a better way to address cultural differences in a joke, even if it's your own culture. All it takes is one listen to NYC comedian Raanan Hershberg's perspective on how to make sure your Jewish jokes are funny, relatable, and authentic.Though the episode is centered around proving you can laugh at Jewish jokes, we tackle so many other topics that can be applied to that theme. We also discuss:-Metaphors that lower the stakes.-Raanan's “offensive to Jews” joke.-Roald Dahl’s anti-Semitism.-Interpretations of Charlie And The Chocolate Factory.-The unintentional harm of trigger warnings.-Intent of a joke or bit.-Religion serving as a connection to the immortal to make us feel safe or powerful, and the ironic consequences of it.-The comedy advice that has stuck with Raanan his whole career.-How specifics can be more relatable than generalizations.-The fear of being a hack comedian.-Raanan’s bit on his experience being Jewish.-Personifying punchlines to connect something unrelatable with certain audiences.-The fun of using callbacks.-Switching from screenwriting to stand-up.-And more!Raanan has been featured on The Late Late Show With James Corden, comedy festivals across the country, and his album "Downhill Ever Since" is available wherever you get your albums.Improve your audio and lighting for Zoom calls and for YOUR podcast and support our guests by purchasing their albums:https://watercoolercomedy.org/podcast25 minutes of additional bonus footage with Raanan available if you become a Patron.
