Tannenbaum & Fagin in 'Good for the Jews', Denver, CO, Dec 15, 2007
Good For The Jews, the world's greatest two-man Jewish music and comedy act, will be touring and shlepping throughout the U.S. in December, celebrating Hanukkah and its tacky aftermath, conventionally referred to as "Christmas."
We'll sing familiar old favorites like "Hot Jewish Chicks" and "They Tried To Kill Us, We Survived, Let's Eat," plus debut new songs, including "Goin' Down To Boca" and our unique twist on a Fiddler On The Roof classic.
Please come out and join us. It's either us, or a re-run of "It's A Wonderful Life."
The acclaimed New York music duo Good For the Jews will be "Putting The Ha! In Hannukah" throughout December, with a thirteen-city tour of North American cities with large Jewish populations.
Good For the Jews' tour is being sponsored by Heeb magazine. Heeb recently named Good For the Jews singer Rob Tannenbaum to the Heeb 100, an elite list of "young, smart and innovative" Jews in the arts. (See heeb100.com/comedy.html)
In less than a year, Rob Tannenbaum and partner David Fagin have won rave reviews around the country from the (mostly Jewish-owned) media.
