NEW YORK, NY , November 30, 2005 – In an age when Madonna demands to be called "Esther," Jon Stewart is a sex symbol and seemingly everyone speaks a little Yiddish, it's never been hipper to be a Jew. VH1's "All Access Presents: So Jewtastic" celebrates everything you knew– and lots of stuff you didn't about being Jewish. (hat tip X)
Thanks to a mensch laden panel of pundits, "So Jewtastic" premiering Monday, December 19 at 9 PM*, will answer questions like: Why is it hip to be a Jew? (the trendy rise of Kabbalah,) Are Jews crunk? (the marriage of Jews and hip hop) and what's the deal with Jewish stereotypes (money, sex and sports)? Jackie Mason will give classic lessons in "Yiddish 101" and an attempt will be made to figure out once and for all why Jews are so funny. So put down that gefilte fish and pop open some Manischewitz, being Jewish has never been "So Jewtastic!"
A variety of music artists, TV and film stars, comedians, journalists and other celebrities come together to dish on all things Jewish, including Brooke Burke, Ben Lee, Evan Seinfeld, Scott Ian, Matisyahu, Darryl McDaniels, Jackie Mason, Dr. Ruth, comedian Elon Gold, Dustin Diamond, Baby the rapper, LA Time's Joel Stein, Warner Music Group's chairman and CEO Lyor Cohen, Ron Jeremy, Rob Tannenbaum from the rock band What I Like About Jew, Atlantic Records' president Julie Greenwald, Bill Adler and Heeb magazine's Josh Neuman.
