SIMMY JOINED WITH JACKIE MASON AND OTHER JEWISH COMEDIANS IN COMMENTING ON JEWS
IN POP CULTURE IN VH1'S ONE HOUR SPECIAL IN JANUARY, 2007.
From Dylan's anthems to Spielberg's blockbusters, it's no secret that Jews have made huge contributions to pop culture. They've succeeded in spite of age-old stereotypes about Jews as brainy, neurotic, and well, anything but hip.
But that's all changing. In an age when Madonna demands to be called "Esther," Demi celebrates Purim and seemingly everyone speaks a little Yiddish, it's never been hipper to be a Jew. All Access Presents: So Jewtastic celebrated everything you knew - and lots of stuff you didn't - about famous members of the Tribe.
The one-hour show covered the trendy rise of Kabbalah, the new hip Jews in Hollywood, the marriage of Jews and hip hop, the connection between Jews and Heavy Metal and the domination of Jews in comedy. As a bonus, Jackie Mason schools the goyim on Yiddish terms that rock. OY GEVALT!
Thanks to a mensch-laden panel of pundits, yentas and a Rabbi or two, So Jewtastic also circumcised the old ideas about Jewish mothers, ridiculous stereotypes and whether or not Jews know how to play sports (they do!)
