Jewish Comedy Festival Presents Jews on the Roof 2017

On Sunday, May 28, Jews on the Roof returns for another run in Toronto. Meet comedians from Canada and the US in an evening that promises to be full of “laughs and chutzpah” but not necessarily “kosher”!

Simon Rakoff, a seasoned Canadian performer, has been making crowds laugh since 1978, and has appeared on numerous Canadian TV shows and festivals, including the Winnipeg Comedy Festival and Just for Laughs. Rakoff will be hosting.

Feature act American stand-up comedian Allan Finn, dubbed “the ultimate multi-cultural comedian”, is set to make you laugh over matters of relationships, marriage, babies, and pop culture. Finn was born in Belgium to Russian-Ukrainian parents, and was raised in the Bronx, then the suburbs, now living now in Astoria, Queens.

Headliner Ian Sirota is known for his family humour which he delivers with a sharp tongue and a “take no prisoners” approach. He has opened for Jerry Seinfeld, Jim Gaffigan, Dennis Miller, Robin Williams and Dana Carvey and headlines comedy clubs across North America. Ian was a regular cast member and writer for Comedy Inc, Comedy Now, Gutterball Alley and many more, and has been nominated for two Gemini Awards, including “Best Comedy performance”.

Jews on the Roof 2017 takes place Sunday, May 28, from 8-10pm at The Regent Theatre, 551 Mount Pleasant Road, Toronto.
