Joshing with Kornbluth, Warhol, Golda, George, Sarah and Other Jews on the Wall.
When you sit and interview Josh Kornbluth, you can’t help but relax quickly and start kibbitzing almost instantly with this very funny, always-reflecting monologist. When I got a chance to share stools with Josh on the Aaron and Cecile Goldman Theater Stage to talk about his new show,
we were almost instantly joined by 13 other guests – Andy Warhol and the famous Jews who comprise his “Ten Portraits of Jews of the Twentieth Century”, which you can visit (but not touch) at the the DCJCC’s Ann Loeb Bronfman Gallery through May 2nd.
Something happens to me every time I walk through the front door of the DC Jewish Community Center: I instantly become Jackie Mason, Groucho Marx, Totie Fields, and Shecky Greene all wrapped up in one, and that’s what happened to me as I sat across from the man for the second time (hear our talk about Citizen Josh at Arena Stage).
This new interview which you are about to watch – turned into a borscht belt zinger-fest where two Jews did what our people have done for thousands of years – we laughed at, with, and about ourselves. And, yes, occasionally – we talked about the show. So, sit back, watch some highlights of the show, have a nosh, enjoy the rapid-fire zingers, and meet Josh, Andy, Groucho, Harpo, Martin, Sarah, and their fellow portraits.
