Circumcise Me - A New Comedy on the Cutting Edge
Sponsor JCC Greater Boston
Type of Event Arts & Culture
Description Circumcise Me, a one-man show written and performed by Yisrael Campbell, the artist formerly known as Christopher, takes place at the Leventhal-Sidman Jewish Community Center in Newton on Saturday, March 17 (8:15pm) and Sunday, March 18 (2pm). Circumcise Me tells the true story of Yisrael Campbell, an average Irish, Italian, Catholic kid from Philly, who became a sober alcoholic, recovering drug addict, husband, father, Reform, Conservative, unorthodox, Orthodox Jew. Yisrael (born Christopher) takes the audience on his extraordinary spiritual, creative and comical journey, including three circumcisions along the way. As Campbell tells it, Circumcise Me is the story of a man born to be funny. The Jewish part came later. The New York Times cheers Circumcise Me: “Plenty of laughs. Mr. Campbell’s genial and polished recounting is a tale well told.” Circumcise Me is part of the Ryna Greenbaum JCC Boston Jewish Book Fair. Ticket price is $26. Discount for JCC members, students and seniors. Talk-back after the show with Campbell. Purchase tickets online at or contact, 617-965-5226 or 866-811-4111. The JCC is located at 333 Nahanton Street in Newton.
