In Too Jewish?, Avi Hoffman combines music, comedy, impersonations and personal reminiscences to take audiences on a journey through his Jewish roots. The show also illustrates the traditions and history of his beloved Yiddish culture. In “Too Jewish?”, audiences throughout can identify with the humor and music of his upbringing. Jews and non-Jews alike, laugh and cry with Avi, as he takes them on a journey through history, relating stories of his family’s immigrant background and the culture within which he was raised. He has discovered the “lost treasures” of Jewish comedy and music. He has found the songs and routines that entertained hundreds of thousands of people from the Catskills to Miami Beach, from Carnegie Hall to the Yiddish Vaudeville.
