About this event
Moshe Kasher always has an edge, whether he’s performing his razor sharp material or doing his unbelievably good crowd work. (He even recorded a crowd work album at our club a few years ago.) As a writer, he’s been a favorite at Comedy Central, working on roasts, writing and acting for “Another Period,” and hosting his own show “Problematic.” Check out one of the most inventive and hilarious comics working today.
Actor / comedian / writer Moshe Kasher has quickly become one of Hollywood’s most in-demand and highly regarded talents. He is the author of the 2012 memoir “Kasher in the Rye: The True Tale of a White Boy from Oakland Who Became a Drug Addict, Criminal, Mental Patient, and Then Turned 16.” In 2018, Moshe and his wife Natasha Leggero debuted a three-part comedy special for Netflix, “The Honeymoon Stand-Up Special.”
In 2017 Moshe hosted his own Comedy Central talk show, “Problematic with Moshe Kasher.” Named one of Variety’s “10 Comics To Watch,” Kasher was the co-executive producer on “Another Period,” on which he was also a cast member.
