After selling out the Gesu theatre in 2010, Kosher Jokes for the Halaladays is back, this time on a 3 city tour, as we attempt to bring Jews and Muslims together under one roof, and laugh in unison during the lonely Christmas season.

Both the Jewish and Muslim communities very well represent Montreal, Toronto and Ottawa. Unfortunately, there is little to do for these groups during the holiday season, until now!

Canada’s top Jewish and Muslim Stand Up Comics are joining forces in an attempt to bring both groups together, to laugh and be very merry.

About the Producers

Montreal’s Hilarious! has produced many successful shows including the Best of Montreal, Canada’s 1st All-Female Comedy Festival, the Boom Comedy Series, the Love Show, We Ain’t Terrorists, United Nations Of Comedy, All-Black Comedy Nite, etc.

The Performers

Eman- Eman's comedy has brought her across Canada, U.S and the Middle East. She's performed in the Just For Laughs Comedy Fest, Amman Comedy Fest, New York Arab American Comedy Fest and her own production She's Canadian, Eh! Comedy Fest. Eman just filmed her own Comedy Now! Special that will air on CTV and the Comedy Network

Jeff Schouela- A great comic and writer who prides himself on original material with a unique delivery style, Jeff has been living the comedy dream for 7 years, performing at prestigious comedy venues in New York, Los Angeles, Toronto, Montreal and Cornwall.

Jessica Salomon- Jessica was working as a war crimes lawyer for the U.N. when she decided to pursue a career in comedy. Frankly, she thought, it was time to get serious.. Jessica works out of Montreal, where she performs regularly at the Comedy Works and the Comedy Nest. She has also performed in Ottawa, Toronto and Chicago and auditioned for Just for Laughs.


Robby Hoffman- Robby Hoffman was born the 7th child to her parents in Brooklyn, New York in 1986 (no, it didn’t end there; her parents had 3 more). She attended Jewish day school for her formative years - where she enjoyed colouring pictures in grade 10 Yiddish class and getting marked for them. Between fending off her brothers and her loud hearing-impaired mother, she still managed to get her Bachelor of Commerce at McGill in 2009.

Also featuring Dan Ciggy and Abdul Butt.
