Laugh the winter blues away at the Simon Family JCC during a comedic evening with Avi Liberman. This is the first of two Performing Arts at the J, presented by Leah Wohl* events this winter.

A favorite in comedy clubs from Los Angeles to New York, Liberman was born in Israel, raised in Texas, attended college in New York, and now resides in Los Angeles. His quirky style is a winning combination of life experiences and topical issues told through a varied blend of characters and voices with worldwide expertise.

Liberman has performed stand-up comedy on CBS’s Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson on Comedy Central’s Premium Blend and Make Me Laugh, as well as NBC’s Friday Night! His acting credits include Dave’s World CBS, Boston Common NBC and Andytown U.S.A. Comedy Central. He can be seen regularly on E! as a frequent guest on their popular countdown series.

Liberman has successfully arranged widely acclaimed stand-up comedy tours in Israel to help boost morale while donating all of the proceeds to a charity. The “Comedy for Koby” tour is now a regular bi-annual event, benefitting the Koby Mandell Foundation.

Although he performs for Jewish audiences, it’s not his everyday routine. Before he makes his way to this area, he is performing to large clubs in Las Vegas, Vancouver and Lake Tahoe.

“I’ve never been to the Virginia Beach area,” says Liberman. “I’m looking forward to pulling out my Jewish jokes alongside my regular stories and to entertaining folks.”

Cost: $20; $15 for JCC members. Cash bar. Tickets are available online at SimonFamilyJCC.org or by calling 321- 2338 or at the door.

Presented in partnership with the Young Adult Division of the United Jewish Federation of Tidewater.
