Is it just me or do people have way more narrishkeit around the holiday season? I know there are some people agree, because "OY! A Comedy with Chutzpah," written by Rich Orloff and directed by Harry Zimmerman is a sketch show being performed at the Jewish Community Center of Greater Albuquerque that pays comedic tribute to all (frustrating) things Jewish and human on Saturday, Dec. 10, beginning at 7:30pm.

The show has been performed at short play festivals like Summer Shorts in Miami and Shadowbox Cabaret in Ohio. They'll perform sketches "Good News from Albert" that follows the the mother of Albert Einstein after he won the Nobel Prize, "Can This Marriage be Saved?" about a human seeking a divorce from God, "Oy" about all the fun words in the Yiddish language, "A Trolley Named Tsuris" a parody of A Streetcar Named Desire and "Come Light the Menorah" following a woman who just learned her sister is lesbian and, more importantly, is dating someone who isn't Jewish. Tickets for nonmember adults costs $15 and tickets for members of JCC are $12. Jewish Community Center of Greater Albuquerque • Sat Dec 10 • 7pm • $12-$15 • 13+ • View on Alibi calendar
