In this period of practicing social isolation while trying to clean for Pesach with 15 children bouncing around the house, parents deserve a few hours of free live entertainment and a group of 11 Frum stand up comedians will be offering just that.
On Wednesday evening starting at 8:00pm EST, comedians from different Frum backgrounds will gather via zoom and livestream their performances and discussions on a Facebook Live hosted by Frumprov. They will also respond live to viewer comments and questions. To watch and participate, simply follow Frumprov on Facebook https://www.facebook.
Headliners are established comedians Levi Goldstein, Eli Lebowicz, Mendy Pellin, and Yisrael Shurack. The event will be hosted by comedian Cholentface.
Frumprov was formed in 2018 as a platform where Frum comics can test out new material in a kosher atmosphere, people who want to explore their comedic talents can express themselves, and quality kosher entertainment can be provided for Frum communities. They have already held over 10 events in Montreal, Crown Heights, and Manhattan. You can follow them on social media and watch previous performances on their YouTube page.
