David Finkelstein on Jewish pre-marital relations

Is he amazing? No, but orthodox Jewish comedians are so rare that I really appreciate them when they come along, the same could be said about me – I’m not a great comedian, but I have good ideas and there aren’t too many other frum guys/girls with balls to get up there and say em.

Hat tip to The Mrs.

    C’mon, the guy is funny. “I’ve never touched a girl in my entire life…. with her consent.”

    Got some good chuckles from this.

    He’s very funny.

    Funniest line was ‘id love a receipt’

  • frum single female February 5, 2013, 7:42 PM

    very cute

    I’ve seen loads of stand-up comedy in my life and have many acquaintances and close friends in that field. My opinion is not politically or religiously motivated… HE’S HILARIOUS!!!

  • DavidWag February 5, 2013, 9:54 PM

    3… 2… 1… And he’s in cherem.

    Yeah, not cool. This guy is taking serious halakhic issues and ridiculing them. OK, so people go overboard with the chumrot sometimes. That doesn’t mean you can turn the basic idea into a joke, especially in front of (what I assume is) a largely secular and probably largely non-jewish audience. Needs to go back over what Hazal say about scoffers.

    • Dan February 6, 2013, 5:15 AM

      Wow, good point. I’m glad you came to this website to say that. All of us are going to take that to heart.

    • Michael K. February 6, 2013, 7:37 AM

      I wonder what Hazal says about people who assume…?

      • person February 6, 2013, 3:03 PM

        …or those with zero sense of humor

    • snooks February 9, 2013, 11:20 PM

      Only someone who spells it “halakhic” would say that. Khill yourself.

  • ksil February 6, 2013, 8:27 AM

    men and “ladies”

    hate that


    • Anonymous February 6, 2013, 1:49 PM

      real yeshivish people only say ladies, not girls. girls is too pritzusdik.

    • Turd Degree February 6, 2013, 11:09 PM

      It’s called ‘misogynist’.

      • David February 7, 2013, 12:17 PM

        “It’s called ‘misogynist’.”

        Whats “It”?

        • portyid February 10, 2013, 8:02 AM

          its funny…let it go

    • Yochanan February 13, 2013, 8:05 PM

      The thing that annoys me about the use of “ladies” is that “lady/ladies” has an air of sophistication (think ladies and gentlemen) that many of the people who say it simply don’t have.

  • Anonymous February 6, 2013, 11:24 AM

    These things are better left unsaid not as boring as the frum blogs

  • Anonymous February 6, 2013, 8:03 PM

    yup. funny.

    Obama to offer shabbos Goy services as saturday mail ends.

  • Anonymous February 7, 2013, 12:16 AM

    This guy is very funny! But he is not Orthodox. Just a quick search on YouTube will show you that. But none the less still very funny.

  • Anonymous February 7, 2013, 4:50 PM

    I have nothing to prove to you if you’d like to think he is forum then go ahead. But if you go on youtube and search his name you will see other wise!

    • Dan February 7, 2013, 8:26 PM

      Why so defensive? I searched on youtube, and I’m not seeing what you see.

    • bratschegirl February 10, 2013, 9:54 AM

      Nor am I. I see one comment saying “He’s religious but not Hasidic,” but I never heard him claim that he was. So come on, what exactly is this smoking gun you’re so anxious for all of us to see? Link, or we’ll have to assume you’re just blowing smoke of your own.

    • Anonymous February 10, 2013, 3:35 PM

      i actually know this guy from yeshiva. his real name is Dovid Greenstein.
      he was actually one of the most serious learners… go figure.
      anyway i think its funny.

  • jackeo February 7, 2013, 7:38 PM

    Methinks Heshy is just the teensiest bit, you know, how do they say, whats the word for it?

  • snooks February 9, 2013, 11:21 PM

    His delivery is actually pretty great…”I’d LOVE a receipt.” Amazing.

  • Witness February 10, 2013, 4:04 AM
  • Port yid February 10, 2013, 8:00 AM

    Stop over thinking, over analyzing everything ..Its funny. The end!

  • Been There February 10, 2013, 8:07 PM

    He’s funny, but I don’t want him to go viral with this material, or we’ll never attract unmarried BTs from among the frum-curious.

    Of course, his “consent” line is priceless because it could have many different meanings, from “I accidentally touch women” to “I’m about to be mentioned on FailedMessiah” to “I’m going to compose easy-to-strum niggunim and the feminist hippie chicks will keep quiet after I touch them.”
