David Ellis: The Worst Jew

16th & 17th July 7.30pm £7.50

David Ellis is a terrible Jew. Just the worst. He doesn’t keep kosher, He couldn’t tell you the last time he set foot inside a synagogue and he frequently forgets how to spell Chanukah. 

All that said, being Jewish is still a huge part of what makes him who he is. In this 45 minute show David will take you on a journey; from bagels to the Bris, from Seinfeld to shivas, from Haroset to the house of bondage. David won’t look at any of this and instead will tell you humiliating stories, petty victories and tales of woefully tragic social ineptitude which he hopes he can somehow tie into his cultural heritage. 

David is a Jewish actor, writer and comedian originally from Bedford. He’s played to sold out crowds in London, Edinburgh, Off-Broadway, Toronto and across Australia. He’s performed with long running comedy shows NewsRevue, Shit-faced Shakespeare, Potted Potter and The Reduced Shakespeare Company. David’s production company Underground Treehouse produces award winning short films and has frequently had films accepted into BAFTA qualifying festivals. He is a graduate of the Royal Court Writers Programme. In 2015 his show Checkpoint 22 transferred from Edinburgh for a run at the Kings’s Head Theatre. His work has also been seen at New Diorama, Old Red Lion and Arcola.
