Standing Up

This 2019 documentary features three young, aspiring stand-up comedians: David, an Ultra Orthodox Jew; Sarah, a Black woman working a day job as a custodian; and Rafaat, a Coptic Egyptian-American personal injury lawyer. Yes, the film is funny, but it also explores the reconciling of life circumstances and traditions with a passionate desire to pursue a competitive and demanding career in New York’s club scene.

The movie streams on Amazon and YouTube. Here is a link to the trailer:

We’ll meet on Zoom at 6:30 PM (NOTE NEW TIME) for Havdallah and an introduction, then watch the film on your own, and reconvene for a discussion after the movie is over.

Invite friends, bring your own nosh, have a fun Saturday night! 

If you have any questions please feel free to contact Carol McCardell.
Looking forward to seeing you there (virtually)!



Hakafa's film group meets once a month, September through May, at 7:00 PM on a Saturday evening to screen and then discuss films of Jewish interest. Check the monthly newsletter for movie details and feel free to contact Carol McCardell with any questions.
