Join nationally-known comedian (and idiot extraordinaire) Brett "Baruch Meir" Walkow on a ridiculous journey from boyhood to manhood in The Baruch Meir Bar Mitzvah Show! Be a part of this warm & humorous evening of comedy as Brett shares his unique take on Jewish life and his awkward journey from boyhood to manhood. Tales of being a pre-teen wearing ill-fitting hand me downs to Bar Mitzvahs in Beverly Hills, tracking down the last Kosher food left in Medford Oregon, and being the only white Jewish comic at a hip hop comedy show!
And since no Bar Mitzvah is complete without a little magic, Brett has invited his friend, The Great Boutelle, to kick the night off with his incredible illusions, sure to both amaze you and tickle your funny bone!
This special show about living life as a Jewish entertainer is a loving tribute to Brett's community of friends and family.
