Leah Forster is an internationally renowned character comic and stand up. Coming from a Hassidic background, Leah was a pioneer in performing comedy at Jewish women's events, selling out shows for thousands. Having grown up in a Yiddish speaking ultra-orthodox family, following a traditional path into marriage and motherhood, she came out of the Hassidic world and the closet, whilst maintaining a warm relationship with her family and community. She came to public attention after a controversial incident where a Kosher Certification authority threatened to cancel venues’ licensing for hosting her show, citing her sexuality.
Daniel Lobell is an LA based comedian, comic book creator, podcaster and graduate of The Second City improv program. Daniel hosts the Modern Day Philosophers podcast, featuring comedians like Bill Burr, Brian Regan and Maria Bamford talking philosophy, and Tipping the Scales, about body image and health. He also created the “Fair Enough” autobiographical comic book series, and has two albums out on Stand Up! Records: “Some Kind of Comedian” and “The Nicest Boy in Barcelona”. In 2017, Daniel made his Edinburgh Fringe debut with acclaimed show “Broke As A Joke” , followed by “Tipping the Scales” in 2019. Get bonus content on the Jew Talkin' To Me? Patreon
