Itâ€™ll be non-stop Hebrew hilarity in this comic competition as Heeb Magazine names its first â€œChosen One.â€ Catie Lazarus host Eugen Mirman, Dov Davidoff, Ben Bailey (Leno, Spider-Man 2), Heather Lawless (Comedy Central), Noam Weinstein and more. The comedians will compete for the Star of David (and a gift certificate to Russ & Daughters delicatessan). Heeb Magazine has a readership of 100,000 and is available at Barnes & Noble, Tower, Borders and independent booksellers. Called the quintessence of â€œall things hipster-Jewishâ€ by The New York Times, Heeb has also been featured in the Los Angeles Times, Chicago Tribune, Boston Globe, Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Time, Newsweek, and on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. Guest Judges: Jennifer Wachtell (Miramax), Dana Goodyear (New Yorker), Josh Tupper (Russ & Daughters) â€œ...guaranteed to be the only Jewish benefit youâ€™ll ever attend on a Friday night,â€ says Heeb Editor, Joshua Neuman. Recently named by The Chicago Tribune as one of Americaâ€™s best magazines, the latest issue of Heeb features interviews with the Beastie Boys, Zach Braff and John Waters, reports on the Kabbalah Centre, Krav Maga and the incipient Religious Left, plus, Jugayica, the Schwartz of the Month and JAPs gone wild!
