Funny business in Israel

Top American comedians, including Maryellen Hooper, John Mulrooney and Saleem, travel to Israel to fundraise for the Koby Mandell Foundation.  The foundation is headed by Avi Liberman and provides “support to family members of victims of terror,” reports the Jerusalem Post

This is the seventh Comedy for Koby tour and includes six national comedy shows with an expected audience of around 2,000.

The audiences’ favorite bits typically include “hearing material based on the comedians’ experiences coming to Israel – dealing with El Al security, visiting the Dead Sea, dealing with taxi drivers in Israel and experiencing the holy sites.”
