Has anybody seen that new ABC game show?
It’s set in New York and called GET ME OUTTA THIS FREAKIN’ BAR MITZVAH, OY!
Here’s the setup: a cast of ten is whisked off to the east coast, thinking that they’re all going to live together in a house as part of a reality show. THEN when they arrive, the producers tell them there’s actually a change in plans. They are blindfolded and trucked off to a secret destination. When they arrive and take off the blinders, they are SHOCKED to find out that they’re actually in Leonard’s of Great Neck, NY… at a LOUD, CRAZY, JEWY, WACKY, BAR MITZVAH!
They’re speechless, right?
Around them are all sorts of strange, foreign, crazy things. Like yarmulkes! And insane bubbes! And matzot! And Yiddish!!! Millions of envelopes filled with US bonds flutter and fly throughout the room! An overweight aunt runs around pinching cheeks! Weird, wacky Jews of all shapes and sizes are lifted up into the air on chairs held by other fascinating Jews! Oh, the humanity!
Will they get out? Will they? OH WILL THEY?
Oh guys, I’m sorry. I think I had something wrong. The show isn’t called “GET ME OUTTA THIS BAR MITZVAH, OY,” it’s…
I Survived A Japanese Game Show.
Thanks for the mitzvah, RJ!
