Meet the Authors: Aaron Rezny and Jordan Schaps
Sunday, November 8, 2015 | 11:00am | Buy Tickets
$36 (includes signed book and brunch)
Delancey Street in New York conjures up an entire world of Yiddishkeit, "The quality of being Jewish; the Jewish way of life or its customs and practices." Delancey, and the streets that cross it on the Lower East Side—are the historical home of Jewish immigrants and thus a cradle of that unique Jewish experience. Eating Delancey is a compilation of gorgeous photographs of classic Jewish food, with profiles and recipes from classic Lower East Side Jewish eateries such as Katz's Delicatessen and Ratner's, complimented by celebrity reminiscences from Bette Midler, Jackie Mason, Don Rickles, Lou Reed, and others. Admission to this event includes brunch, a personalized autographed copy of this highly- acclaimed food biography, gallery tour and presentation by the authors.

“Rollicking, fast-moving and hilarious!” That’s how The Guardian describes this clever three man comedy troupe with a knack for taking serious subjects and reducing them to short, sharp comedies.They’ve skewered history, the Bible and the world’s most celebrated playwright. Now, the Reduced Shakespeare Company tackles the subject it was born to reduce. From the high-brow to the low, The Complete History of Comedy (abridged) examines comedy through the ages, from Shakespeare to Vaudeville to Charlie Chaplin to Jon Stewart. The company’s itinerary has included stops at the White House, the Kennedy Center, Lincoln Center as well as performances in Israel, Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong, and Japan. According to the Cincinnati Enquirer, “[This is] a show about wit. About quick minds. About what makes us laugh. And what’s fair game for laughter.”
