What I Like About Jew (The Reunion No One Asked For)
Seven years after their acrimonious breakup, What I Like About Jew — the "giants of Jewish Joke-Pop" (NY Times) — will reunite for a single concert at The Cutting Room on Monday, Dec. 22nd.

"If I were a rich man, I'd plunk down the cash to see this show." - The New York Times

What I Like About Jew is the musical comedy duo of Sean Altman and Rob Tannenbaum, who've been called "the Bart Simpsons of the Yeshiva" byTime Out New York, and "the Simon & Garfunkel of ethnic gag songs" by The Boston Globe.

The duo was featured in Time Out's cover story on "The New Super Jews," and has been hailed inThe New Yorker, The New York Times, NPR's "Fresh Air" with Terry Gross, and Philadelphia Weekly, which said: "Nothing compares to the bawdy borscht-belt comedy of Altman and Tannenbaum, who take Catskills seltzer-bottle humor to a dirty new low, with lyrics that make Lenny Bruce look like a choirboy."

Since the breakup, Rob founded the duo Good For The Jews and Sean founded the comedy song concert JEWMONGOUS.


New York Times
"Sean Altman and Rob Tannenbaum might be giants of Jewish joke-pop, but you can also hear some Beatles in their risque borscht-belting, not to mention a reverence for tradition."

Boston Globe
"Their songs are racy and funny and smart and affectionate, written for a generation of fully assimilated Jews who grew up on punk rock and 'South Park.'"

Village Voice
"Sly and hilarious."

Boston Herald
"Campy and deliriously kitschy Jewish-themed singalongs."

"With wickedly witty lyrics that make the audience moan and groan, Altman and Tannenbaum are not-so-nice Jewish boys. They set a new standard of outrageousness for the rest of the Jewish pop star wannabes."

Time Out New York
"A roving celebration of Hebraic song and culture."

"HILARIOUS! And yes. Rob's hair really is THAT fabulous."

Baltimore CityGuide
"Irreverent and hilarious, a smorgasbord of dirty humor, high wit and musical lunacy. Think Lenny Bruce meets Mel Brooks meets Sarah Silverman."

Eric Alterman of MSNBC.com
"It's intelligent, reflective, funny, self-critical and celebratory all at once. And it sure beats the hell out of circumcision."

Jewish Telegraph
"The hilarious CD will offend as many people as it delights."
