  • Watch: Woody Allen as a pimp in ‘Fading Gigolo’ trailer

    August 15, 2013 | 9:52 am

    It’s hard to decide what seems more unlikely: Woody Allen playing a pimp, or Woody Allen starring in someone else’s film.

    Believe it or not, in “Fading Gigolo,” the legendary Jewish director does both. John Turturro wrote and directed the film, in which Allen plays a bookseller...

    Okay, so we have this cute girl who meets a sexy guy for coffee and they hit it off. A few minutes later (give or take) the same girl, meets another sexy guy, and they also hit it off.

    It’s been a while since this many Jews partied in the desert.  Last time it happened, I believe the earth opened up and swallowed them alive.

    But TribeFest is a little different than golden calf worshipping, aside from the heavy dose of temptation…

    Here’s a VideoJew special report on the convention this past week.

    This is my vacation…

    Visiting my parents in Pittsburgh, PA was the initial reason for taking such a long break between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.  But when I realized my visit would coincide with the G-20 summit, I decided to act fast.

    A Chanukah video collaboration and I wasn’t involved?  Shame on me. 

    If I had been on my game, I would’ve submitted a dynamite candle lighting clip (maybe even with real dynamite).  I’d bring all the VideoJew friends together (Jelvis, Gino, Aaron Kemp, the guys from the kosher Subway, mah-jongg lady Elaine Sandberg)...the list could go on forever.  But I suppose the VideoJew holiday special will have to wait until next year.

    Volume V: Jew vs. Wild

    One of the main reasons I moved to Los Angeles was for the weather.  Unfortunately, it took me a few months before I really started taking advantage of the climate and outdoor activities, like hiking, fishing, swimming, sailing, sunbathing, people watching, breathing, etc.  And of course, the common stereotype exists that Jews and the wilderness are not a match made in heaven.  But I traveled deep into the wild (Santa Monica pier and the Hollywood Hills) to prove that in the battle between Jews and the wild…Jews win.
