Purim is the Jewish holiday made for me. After all, it’s about Asian guys picking up cute Jewish girls, and drinking!
It’s also the Jewish holiday made for comedy writer Rob Kutner (he’s written for the Daily Show and Tonight Show), who writes the comedy sketches that the Shushan Channel perform at Purim for the annual Purim Party at the 92 Y Theatre in Tribeca. For the 2008 show, he wrote the parody Jewno:
And for the 2010 show, he’s cooked up Wolfman, DDS, a thriller featuring a dentist who starts “doing things no suburban Jewish professional would dream of”:

It’s Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish holiday often referred to as “Jewish New Year”, is the start of the civil year in the Hebrew calendar and the beginning of the Days of Awe. Like many other cultures’ new year traditions, it’s a time to reflect on the past year and make plans and resolutions for the upcoming one.
In honour of this holiday, here’s one of my favourite Shabot 6000 comics. Enjoy!
P.S. Big thanks to Rochelle for inviting us to celebrate with her family tonight!
