Ivor Dembina: This Is Not A Subject For Comedy

Show type: Edinburgh Fringe 2008

Starring: Ivor Dembina

So, how do you make the Arab-Israeli conflict funny?

Jewish comedian Ivor Dembina presents his take on the ‘state’ of Israel, This is Not a Subject for Comedy.

'I'm one of those Jews who believe we should give back the Occupied Territories... but I think we should hang on to New York.'

Based on his experiences as a peace volunteer in Palestine, Ivor Dembina takes us on a comedy journey to the West Bank stopping en route at Auschwitz and Jerusalem. Laughter jostles with tension when, after a traditional Jewish suburban upbringing, he finds himself on a collision course with his own community, culminating in a final nerve-racking confrontation with the Israeli army.
