The story of an American Jewish comedian bringing his colleagues to the Jewish homeland to lift spirits and raise funds for a great cause is none other than Avi Liberman’s Land of Milk and Funny.
The Times of Israel first wrote of how “from thousands of miles away, a rising young Jewish comedian decided not merely to devote much of his own career to regularly visiting Israel in order to entertain a nation battered by terrorism..[but] also (initially) implored, cajoled and (subsequently) encouraged his professional colleagues — Jews, Christians, white, black, whatever — to join him on this adventure.”
Described by The Times of Israel as “both sidesplitting and moving,” this hilarious and revealing film details stand-up comedian Avi Liberman’s ongoing quest to bring top-tier American comedy to Israeli audiences. The tours he’s put together have featured 30 comedians, at 100 performances, selling 20,000 tickets, and generating a quarter of a million dollars — much of it for the Comedy for Koby charity.
