Celebrate Israel at 70 through comedy and food. Comedian Joel Chasnoff and Chef Einat Admony join forces for the hilarious show, Belly Laughs. This new comic/chef collaboration began when the two co-wrote Balaboosta, a cookbook featuring 140 of Einat’s recipes infused with Joel’s comedic touches. Comedian and Chicago native Joel Chasnoff is a former IDF combat soldier and wrote his comedic memoir, The 188th Crybaby Brigade, about his service in the Israeli Army. Returning to Cincinnati by popular demand, Joel has performed on stage and screen in nine countries, including two off-Broadway shows. Chef Einat is a Tel Aviv native, James Beard finalist, and the owner of several highly regarded NYC restaurants. She is a two-time winner of popular cooking competition show Chopped, and beat celebrity chef Bobby Flay on his own show, Throwdown with Bobby Flay.All attendees will taste the food that Einat prepares on-stage.
Presented in partnership with Dr. and Mrs. Stephen N. Joffe and the Jewish Federation of Cincinnati in celebration of Israel at 70.
