The Jewish Federation of Northeastern Pennsylvania is excited to bring internationally known comedian, Avi Liberman, to the Scranton JCC’s Koppelman Auditorium on Saturday evening, November 2, 2019, as part of our annual UJA Campaign.
Avi Liberman’s quirky style has made him a favorite in comedy clubs from Los Angeles to New York. Avi has performed stand-up comedy on CBS’s “Late Late Show” with Craig Ferguson on Comedy Central’s “Premium Blend” and “Make Me Laugh” as well as NBC’s “Friday Night!” His acting credits include “Dave’s World” CBS, “Boston Common” NBC, and “Andytown, USA” Comedy Central. Since 2001, Avi has successfully arranged widely acclaimed stand-up comedy tours in Israel to help boost morale while donating all of the proceeds to a charity. The successful “Comedy For Koby” tour is now a bi-annual event, benefitting the Koby Mandell Foundation.
This year, a percentage of the proceeds from our UJA Campaign event will benefit the 32nd Teen Symposium on the Holocaust which is an annual program that helps to educate Middle and High School students from Northeastern Pennsylvania and New York about the horrors of the Holocaust. It also provides an opportunity for participants to meet with survivors of the Holocaust and American GIs, who liberated the Nazi concentration camps.
