BURLINGTON - While many believe that comedy can cure many ills, one comedy production will literally bring more heat to Vermont homes this winter. That's due to a partnership between Moo-Jew Comedy and CVOEO's Project WARMTH, in which partial proceeds will benefit the vital program for needy Vermonters who need free heating oil.
"In this economic climate, we need assistance more than ever from Vermont donors and businesses to help warm our homes," said Tim Searles, executive director of CVOEO. "What's remarkable is that Moo-Jew Comedy took the initiative and approached us."
"This is part of the Hanukkah spirit," said Moo-Jew Comedy producer and comedian Jason P. Lorber. "A miracle of Hanukkah was that one night's oil lasted eight nights, so it's only fitting that we designated Project WARMTH this year's beneficiary."
This year's third annual Moo-Jew Comedy features top comedians from New York, including Ophira Eisenberg (Comedy Central, VH-1, "Jewish Girls Gone Bad"), along with Myq Kaplan (Comedy Central, Seattle's International Comedy Competition, Boston Comedy Festival).
Moo-Jew Comedy takes place at the Asian Bistro in Williston Dec. 23-25, with the dinner starting promptly at 8 p.m. According to Lorber, gentiles are welcome, especially loud ones.
Tickets and seat reservations can be made at 802-863-5966 or at the Flynn Box Office.
