From thousands of miles away, a rising young Jewish comedian decided not merely to devote much of his own career to regularly visiting Israel in order to entertain a nation battered by terrorism..but also implored, cajoled, and (subsequently) encouraged his professional colleagues Jews, Christians, white, black, whatever to join him on this adventure.
Land of Milk and Funny views Israel through the eyes of society's best and funniest observers: stand-up comedians. For fifteen years, Avi Liberman has been taking fellow American comedians of different backgrounds to Israel. As they tour and perform across the country, some are deeply affected, overcome by the spiritual significance of Biblical and historic sites; others are wildly irreverent. Born in Israel and raised in Texas, Liberman's tours feature 30 renowned comedians (i.e. Gary Gulman, Craig Robinson, Wayne Federman, and Dan Naturman) doing 100 shows, selling over 20,000 tickets for charity.
Screening to be held at the Barshop JCC located at 12500 N.W. Military Hwy.
