The show will also feature Sohrab Forouzesh, an Iranian-American stand-up comedian and finalist for StandUp NBC. He has performed at Gilda’s Laughfest Comedy Festival and is a regular at Laugh Factory and Zanies comedy clubs in Chicago.

And, as ever, Christmas for the Jews will be hosted by comedian and City Winery favorite Joel Chasnoff. He’s a former IDF combat soldier and author of the comedic memoir The 188th Crybaby Brigade, about his service in the Israeli Army.

Joel Chasnoff Returns to Chicago for Christmas

A Chicago native, Joel has performed on stage and screen in nine countries, including two off-Broadway shows, a USO comedy tour of Japan and Korea, more than 1,000 Jewish events in North America and Europe, and Israeli late-night TV.

A graduate of I.O. (formerly Improv Olympic) in Chicago and UCB and The PIT in New York, Joel performs improv and teaches his Improv Comedy 101 Workshop to adults and teens.

A portion of proceeds from Joel’s comedy and book sales is donated to his foundation, Project Elijah.
