Rockapella star Sean Altman’s unkosher comedy song concert Sean Altman’s JEWMONGOUS is “tuneful and sharply witty” (Los Angeles Times), “relentlessly clever” (Chicago Tribune) and “bawdy with a wicked modern streak” (Washington Post), with “hilarious pleasures” (The New Yorker) that combine “the tunefulness of the Beatles and the spot-on wit of Tom Lehrer” (Boston Globe). Altman is a former, founding member of Rockapella and led that pioneering vocal group through its heyday years on the Emmy-winning PBS-TV series, Where In The World Is Carmen Sandiego?, for which Altman wrote the famous theme song. His classic Passover song “They Tried To Kill Us (We Survived, Let’s Eat)” has been featured on NPR’s Fresh Air with Terry Gross. Altman has twice performed for The President at the White House Chanukah Party, he has shared concert stages with Billy Joel, Steve Miller, Whoopi Goldberg, Jon Stewart, Jay Leno, Joey Ramone and Moby, and he has recorded with artists as diverse as Steve Miller, XTC, John Cale, Richie Havens and They Might Be Giants. Guest performers on this tour: Cynthia Kaplan & Michael Hunter. PRUDISH PARENTAL ADVISORY: JEWMONGOUS welcomes all faiths and creeds but is not appropriate for children unless you’re training them to be sailors.

JEWMONGOUS Hanukkah Concert At Milkboy Coffee

Would you like to do something hip for Hanukkah this year?  Call up your JDate and reserve your seats for December 22nd at the Milkboy Coffee in Ardmore. JEWMONGOUS is in town for only one performance of his comedy song concert.

Who is JEWMONGOUS?  Sean Altman was part of the Rockapella group that composed the famous Emmy-winning song for the PBS-TV series, Where In The World Is Carmen Sandiego?  In 1997, he embarked on his solo career, naming his newest incarnation JEWMONGOUS.  

More after the jump.
Mr. Altman tells me, “Christmas (a.k.a. “the Christian Chanukah”) is upon us and JEWMONGOUS is gonna party like it’s the 1999th-iversary of Christ’s bar mitzvah.  Featuring his new song “Jesus Christ’s Bar Mitzvah” and original favorites like “The Least Jewy Jew In Jewville”, “They Tried To Kill Us (We Survived, Let’s Eat)” and “Phantom Foreskin.”  

Sean Altman concludes by telling me, “JEWMONGOUS welcomes all believers and heathens but is not appropriate for children unless you’re training them to be sailors.”
