This Week’s Guest Editor – JOSHUA NEUMAN

As the authority on all things Jewish, Heeb publisher Joshua Neuman is, therefore, the authority on all things comedy. (Come on. We’ve got Mel Brooks, Gilda Radner,  Jerry Seinfeld, and Sarah Silverman in our camp. We win. L’chaim!) Since the “new Jew review” just included Rooftop comedian Moshe Kasher in its annual “Heeb Hundred” roundup of all things hot (or is that chot ?), we’re doubly honored to have Joshua as this week’s Guest Editor.

Joshua has a cool life. A proud member of the ubiquitous Friar’s Club, he’s an author, a writer, a lover. And, of course, he’s hilarious. Otherwise…why bother? Here, just see for yourself.

JOSHUA’S PICKS

1) Breast Exam – Whitney Cummings
In my opinion, she’s got a name more fit for porn than Hollywood, but her manager did somehow squeeze her onto the Joan Rivers Roast earlier this year, so I guess he must be looking after her. True story: She interviewed me at Sundance a couple of years ago and in less than a minute asked me if I did anal. In this clip she talks about her “two A’s in highschool.”

2) Horror Movie Reception – Kumail Nanjiani
Nanjiani is a rising star who we’ve featured a few times at our Heeb Storytelling series. He’s a master of affixing his gaze on obscure moments and making them feel anything but impertinent. Here he talks about the way that cell phones have impacted horror film scripts.

3) McDonald’s Birth - Natasha Leggero
Imagine Dorothy Parker holding court at a trailer park instead of the Algonquin Hotel. Here, she compares a woman in Montana’s aborted fetus to a bad “McRib” sandwich. The grimier the club, the funnier it is to watch this prissy dame dish it out.

4) What It’s Like to be Gay – Moshe Kasher
When I first saw Moshe Kasher walk onto a stage, I couldn’t believe my eyes. Had Le Tigre broken up? We included Kasher as one of ten comics to watch this year in our Fourth Annual Heeb Hundred list. Here, he is at the Aspen Rooftop Comedy Festival espousing homosexual conspiracy theories.

5) Garage Comedy Night - Alessandra Rizzotti

In this clip, Alessandra Rizzotti is in a similar condition that she was when I first met her—neck brace, missing front teeth, etc…. No joke: She literally fell off a cliff in Malibu Canyon Creek and still she’s up there, on stage, going about her business, talking about her Mexican lovers, as if nothing happened. Rizzotti is not just a quirky, comic surrealist, she’s also got balls.

6) The Hitler Strip – Chris Hardwick
After a Luna Lounge show back in the late 90s, I ended up sitting next to him and striking up a conversation about Kierkegaard for about 45 minutes—he had apparently studied philosophy at Princeton. When he took off somebody told me he was the host of Shipmates, I couldn’t believe it. The guy is brilliant. I highly recommend this clip—but maybe don’t trust me because I’m a sucker for Hitler jokes.

Video cameras have been getting more high-tech, more capable and more available to the average consumer. The result of this is that there are a lot of camcorders out there. Despite the advent of new technology like straight-to-DVD recording and purely digital storage, the majority of camcorder films still end up on VHS tape for viewing. Given the imminent death of the VCR (as soon as recordable DVD set-top boxes become an affordable item), we feel it’s a good time to get a jump on converting your treasured home movies to recordable DVDs.
