Nice Jewish Girls Gone Wild Present a Boozy Burlesque Show for Hanukkah

Are you a constant disappointment to your mother? Are your lady cojones bigger than the matzoth balls in your metaphoric soup? Then you might be a nice Jewish girl gone bad. And we have the perfect way for you to spend tomorrow night, the last night of Hanukkah. A new downtown venue [email protected] is commemorating eight days of light with He'Brew, "The chosen Beer," and a vaudeville-type show by comedy troupe Nice Jewish Girls Gone Bad, who've been described as "Borsht Belt meets Courtney Love."



The troupe includes Dana Eagle (Comedy Central) and Sister Schmaltz, and will be hosted by the Goddess Perlman (Last Comic Standing), who describes herself as a low-budget Sandra Bernhard with a better dentist. Expect tap dancing dreidels, the first Israeli strip dance, sketch comedy, burlesque, and spoken word. The sassy semites, who evoke the bodacious babes of Russ Meyers flicks (Faster! Pussycat! Kvetch! Kvetch!), will also be presenting original haikus about Hanukah. If you enjoy Julie Klausner, then you'll definitely love this.

Check out the group's rap video about hamantaschen, the three-corner pastry served during Purim.


Hanukkah Haiku with Nice Jewish Girls Gone Bad starts at 7 p.m. tomorrow night at [email protected] (137 NE 19th Street, Miami). Call 305-542-7732 or visit nextat19th.org.
