SARATOGA SPRINGS–Chabad of Saratoga will host an evening with comedian Robert Cait on Tuesday, Aug. 20, at 7 p.m. at its Chabad House, 130 Circular St., as part of the Saratoga Jewish Cultural Festival. “Cait’s brilliant Jewish stand-up comedy has earned him the title, “George Carlin with a kippah,” according to Raizel Rubin, codirector of Saratoga Chabad. She added, “With one wonderful exception, Robert works ‘kosher-clean!’”
Cait, who lives and works in Los Angeles, Calif., sprinkles his sets with Hebrew and Yiddish (he’s fluent in both) as he riffs on such things as the high cost of Jewish education, what makes Israelis tick, and bizarre holiday foods.
Cait also uses his voice talents in films, television series and commercials such as the voice of ‘Duke the Dog” for Bush’s Baked Beans, Boris Badenov for DreamWorks’ “Bullwinkle” cartoons, Norm the Genie for Nickelodeon’s “Fairly Odd Parents,” and as Colossus from “X-Men.”
A $10 admission/ donation is requested. Those planning to attend are asked to make reservations with Rabbi Abba Rubin, codirector, at 518-526-0773 or e-mail email@example.com. Walk-ins will also be welcome.
