Does the news get you down? Not with these two former Stand-Up Comics! Embracing the philosophy that it’s better to laugh than cry, join co-hosts Steve Miller and Matt Zucker as they take an irreverent look at the news from the Holy land and beyond.
Steve Miller spent 25 years in the entertainment industry as a professional comedian. He has toured all over the world entertaining millions of people. From Comedy clubs in Los Angeles and New York to the U.S troops in the Middle East, Japan, Africa & South Korea. His style of comedy is auto biographical and he brings his life to the stage with pure honesty. In 2015 he had a life changing moment and decided to use his comedy and his new love of Torah, Israel and the Jewish people and somehow mesh the two together to inspire others to also love Torah & Israel. Currently he lives outside of the Philadelphia area in the United States with his wife & 2 Children and plans on eventually living in Israel before Moshiach (the Messiah) comes!
Matt Zucker was born and raised in the Philadelphia area and grew up in what he considers, a “typical” American Jewish home: strong on Israel (as long as he promised never to move there) and Conservative Judaism. How Matt – a former Hebrew School truant – wound up getting rid of nearly everything he owned and making Aliyah (moving to Israel) with his wife in the middle of a pandemic, is testament to the adage that “Man plans and G-d laughs.” Matt is a recovering broadcaster, having worked in News Talk Radio in a previous life, and really can’t believe he’s doing it again, and this time in his ancestral homeland. Matt’s truisms of life: everything happens for a reason, trust in G-d and laugh as much as possible; otherwise, you’ll go mad.
