Philip Roth’s writing overflows with humor, irony, satire, wit and the unflinching absurdities of his indelible characters. Roth revered comedian Lenny Bruce, and Roth’s friends have said he would have made a great Borscht Belt comedian. In that spirit, you’re invited to this night of comedy and kibitzing at Hobby’s Delicatessen. Writers and comics will perform stand-up sets and read Roth’s most hilarious excerpts. Come for the laughs, stay for the drool-worthy pastrami and other Jewish delicacies. Hobby’s famous food is included in the price of your ticket! Participants include comedian Eddie Brill, and others to be announced.
