Your eyes are reading this title correctly. It does say Borscht "Belch" Tour. A large bowl of Borscht tends to make you burp, and since we're bringing back the Jewish humor of the Catskills, our title is appropriately named, The Borscht Belch Tour - A 'Repeat' Performance.


In tribute to the Borscht Belt, a time and place long gone, The New York Hysterical Society has collected some of the funniest Jewish Comedians working today throughout the NYC area to bring back to life the "Shticky" humor that was the mainstay at the Catskill Mountains during the 1940s through the 1970s.

In their heyday, comedians such Milton Berle, George Burns, Red Buttons, Sid Caesar, Shecky Greene, Buddy Hackett, Henny Youngman, and so many more, performed at well-known resorts including Brickman's, Brown's, The Concord, Grossinger's, Granit, the Heiden Hotel, Irvington, Kutsher's Hotel and Country Club, the Nevele, Friar Tuck Inn, The Laurels Hotel and Country Club, The Pines Resort, Raleigh, the Overlook, the Tamarack Lodge, Stevensville and the Windsor.

Our Troupe of Comedians includes:

Jewish Comedy Tour
Content: The Jewish Comedy Tour

The JCT is tour consisting of a 1:30 hour show, with headliner Jessica Kirson. In addition, Bernie Fursh hosts the show and brings up quickly rising stars in Jewish Comedy. You can book this show for organization, temple, JCC, and college. Great show for a roast, private party, benefit, fundraiser. For several thousand years of oppression, nothing brings the funny like coping with shared misery. Jewish humor is a revival of a style of comedy that was based entirely on suffering… Jews have always been really good at making suffering funny, whether it’s about the cruelty of a people or an appalling piece of sturgeon. American Jewish humor started in NYC at the Yiddish Theater on Second Ave. The jokes were about the anxiety of being a greenhorn with an old world accent. It was in the fifties when self-effacement and self abasement, paranoia, pessimism and the dread of being conspicuous were defined as the cornerstones of Jewish humor. So we decided we don’t want to give up the suffering... it seems to be working for us. So that’s why we’re doing this.

Laugh in Peace Comedy Tour
Content: Laugh in Peace Comedy Tour

There’s a reason why XM and Sirius satellite radio play Rabbi Bob Alper’s bits several times daily, often sandwiched between Bob Newhart and Bill Cosby: Bob’s unique background…he’s an ordained rabbi who served congregations for fourteen years and holds a doctorate from Princeton Theological Seminary…prepared him well for a twenty-year comedy career with wonderfully unique material presented in a way that’s intelligent, sophisticated, and 100% clean. Audiences adore him, from an SRO crowd at the prestigious Montreal Comedy Festival to a standing ovation before 2,700 people at New York’s famed Chautauqua Institution. He’s even appeared at The Hollywood IMPROV. Bob performs all across North America and England, at corporate events, theatres, non-profits, conventions, private parties, churches, and, naturally, synagogues. And he’s done over 100 shows with his Arab and Muslim comedy partners, at a variety of venues, but primarily colleges and universities.

The Geek Comedy Tour

"Comedy that KNOWS Han shot first." The Geek Comedy Tour is a collective of the funniest stand-up comedians from the Washington DC area. Each one is an experienced comic, having performed at bars, clubs, and colleges all over the East Coast. Telling their normal jokes to normal audiences but all of that was about to change. There was something amiss. For you see, they were all gigantic dorks, and comedy club crowds don't fully appreciate jokes about comic books, anime, and video games. So, they've decided to let their freak flag fly, form together, and bring their geek jokes to the horde that needs them most. Since their formation two years ago, The Geek Comedy Tour has performed at a variety of venues, from anime conventions, college shows, and even the grand opening of a comic shop! The Tour features the comedy of Chris Barylick, Joe Deeley, James Jones, Jimmy Merritt, Evan Valentine, and Jake Young.
