"The world's only practicing clergyman
With such impressive credentials, Bob quite naturally decided to embark on a second career as a comedian. He now performs internationally, billed as "the world's only practicing clergyman doing stand-up comedy . . . intentionally." He has appeared on "Showtime," "Comedy Central," "Extra" and ABC's "Good Morning America," plus hundreds of radio programs.
Featured in dozens of newspaper and magazine articles and a frequent guest on television, Rabbi Bob Alper draws tremendous audience response wherever he performs. His act is clean, his humor is gentle, and he is a charming and affable performer. And one more thing he's funny . . . very, very funny.
Yes, most of his audiences are Jewish, though he also kills at civic, Christian and corporate events. His humor is totally clean, non-threatening, non-controversial and unique! He is charming and affable. He is not a humorist, storyteller or raconteur. He is a stand-up comic!
His material is 95% universal.
Frequently, his weekend performance schedule is quite full. He generally does not perform on Friday nights or during the day Saturday, unless in the context of a synagogue event. He has no problem traveling on the Sabbath, however. He especially enjoys weekday engagements.
What Others Say about Bob Alper --
Also available ---
Imagine top-notch comedy featuring two seasoned performers with an implicit, but not preachy, humorous message of healing and understanding.
That is what Ahmed Ahmed and Rabbi Bob Alper present -- and that is why audiences of Jews, Muslims and Christians find themselves enjoying more than 100 minutes of sustained laughter!
On one August day, similar e-mail inquiries arrived from students at Harvard and students at Johns Hopkins University. They were interested in bringing Ahmed and Bob to their campuses to diffuse tension that had developed between Muslim and Jewish groups and to enhance the friendships that exist between them. The Harvard inquiry came form a Jewish student leader. The Johns Hopkins inquiry came from a Muslim student leader.
Rabbi Bob Alper performs all across North America,
London, and even at The Hollywood Improv. As seen on Showtime, Good
Morning America, and Extra.
Bob and Ahmed have received warm, positive recognition internationally, including CNN's "American Morning with Paula Zahn," NPR, BBC, "The Today Show," New York's Newsday, the Los Angeles Times, The San Francisco Chronicle (front page), the Boston Sunday Globe, USA Today, The Hollywood Reporter and an Associated Press article appearing in hundreds of newspapers.
The Alper-Ahmed act has only one rule: no political jokes. Both comedians stay away from each other's religion, though Ahmed makes comparisons. "We don't eat pork, we don't celebrate Christmas, we both say 'Chhh' a lot, and we're both hairy creatures of God."
