Enduring a Seder sometimes feels like a 40-year schlep through the desert. Enter Dave Barry, Alan Zweibel, and Adam Mansbach, whose new Haggadah parody, For This We Left Egypt?, ensures that good Jews everywhere will never have to sit through another boring Seder again.
The award-winning comedy writers will be joined by standup comedian and radio host Ophira Eisenberg. They’ll talk Passover survival, tips for making it through any family holiday meal, and how every step of the Seder, from the first cup of wine to finding the Afikomen, can be much funnier than you imagined.
