Sean Altman & JEWMONGOUS Sat Dec 6th Silver Spring, MD

12/01/2014 10:57 AM | Sean Altman

Dear Friends. So nice to meet many of you at NERFA. Please join me this Sat Dec 6th at 8pm in Silver Spring, where I'll shlep all the way down from Harlem to perform a set of bittersweet originals and a set of decidedly UNbittersweet JEWMONGOUS comedy songs at Geoff & Julia's great Woodside Park house concert series. JEWMONGOUS welcomes all faiths and the faithless but is NOT appropriate for children unless you're training them to be sailors. Here's the venue link http://woodsideparkhouseconcerts.net/

Yours, Sean

Ex-Rockapella star Sean Altman's unkosher comedy song concert JEWMONGOUS is "tuneful and sharply witty" (Los Angeles Times), "relentlessly clever" (Chicago Tribune) and "bawdy with a wicked modern streak" (Washington Post), combining "the tunefulness of the Beatles and the spot-on wit of Tom Lehrer" (Boston Globe). Altman, who "writes hilarious and irreverent acoustic rock songs about his awakening Jewish awareness" (Jerusalem Post), is "part of a new breed of Jewish hipster comedy that includes Jon Stewart, Sacha Baron Cohen, Sarah Silverman and Heeb Magazine" (Philadelphia Daily News). He is a former, founding member of Rockapella and led that pioneering vocal group through its heyday years on the Emmy-winning PBS-TV series, Where In The World Is Carmen Sandiego?, for which Altman co-wrote the famous theme song. His classic Passover song "They Tried To Kill Us (We Survived, Let's Eat)" has been featured on NPR's Fresh Air with Terry Gross. Altman has twice performed for The President at the White House Chanukah Party, he has shared concert stages with Billy Joel, Whoopi Goldberg, Jon Stewart, Jay Leno, Joey Ramone and Moby, and he has recorded with artists as diverse as XTC, John Cale, Richie Havens and They Might Be Giants. Altman sings vocal standards at the bedside of hospital patients as a volunteer with Musicians On Call and has performed JEWMONGOUS throughout the USA, Europe, Israel and once in China. www.jewmongous.com
