Shabbat Dinner 1/21 730pm-9pm, $6 Online/ $8 Door at Q.E.D. 27-16 23rd Ave, Astoria, NY 11105

You might not be able to tell from their names, but Tovah Silbermann and Eitan Levine are Jewish-very Jewish, and they want to tell you all about it. Join Eitan, Tovah and their comedy friends as they share true stories, comedy and just a little bit of Jewish guilt. This week, Shabbat’s come early. This month’s shabbat guests include Marcia Belsky (Bridgetown Comedy Festival), Myq Kaplan (America’s Got Talent, Letterman, Conan), Benjy Susswein (Stand Up NY), Dana Friedman (Gotham Comedy)



Eitan Levine is a writer, improviser and stand up comedian. He is currently a member of the PIT house team, Champagne Empire, the Magnet musical improv house team Goats, and the co-host/head writer of Who Won The Internet? which airs weekly on PITtv. During daylight hours he is a trending news writer for Elite Daily. Eitan has no idea how to interact with women because he went to an all-boys Jewish high school and, not that he’s ever tried it, does not understand the appeal of shellfish.


Tovah Silbermann is a comedy producer and standup comedian living in New York City. She produces shows all over the city, is the co-founder of the Empire Biscuit Comedy Festival and host of the podcast Making Ends Meet with Max and Tovah. She is also a formerly Hassidic Jewess who spends her time offstage navigating secular life, pretending like she understands basic cultural references and wishing she had a prom.
