When traveling, I find it best to blend in with the locals as best you can.
I think I blended:
In fact, I blended so well that locals were all speaking Hebrew to me. When I stopped them and said I was from America, they would always respond, “But you’re Jewish, right?” I would tell them, “No, I’m not Jewish.” I was told, “You could be!” Uhhh…Thank you?
I was performing as part of a tour called “Comedy for Koby” a foundation that helps families who’ve lost loved ones to terror attacks. I can’t think of a better use for Comedy.
I went once before but that time I brought Mark and Nate. Nate was 2. The only thing I did on that trip was look for diapers and a place to change them. Oh, we climbed Masada…with Nate strapped to my back.
But this time I got to be a tourist. In a nutshell I:
Went to the Souk (Avi lied…it was NOTHING like the mall.)
I bought some:
And didn’t buy:
I visited the Western Wall:
And covered some bases:
I felt illiterate:
But somehow understood:
I got my watch fixed:
And saw the bald head of the Governor of FL:
I met the most amazing people and made them my friends:
Now I know everything I need to know about the Kabbalah:
Oh, yeah…and I told some jokes (With Saleem, Avi Liberman & John Mulrooney) :
PS. Not sure, but I think I got married:
