Once a normal, over-sexed, seventh grader addicted to Broadway musicals and full of hope for the future, Sammy Teitelbaum is now twenty-three, single, unemployed, and living with his parents in White Plains. He blames it all on a Bar Mitzvah gone tragically wrong. From his way-cool spiritual advisor Rabbi Z to his Machiavellian party-planner Lori Goodstein, there’s plenty of blame to go around. Steven Levenson and Andy Hertz explore the dark underbelly of Jewish adolescence (even though they’ve been told repeatedly not to put their hands down there) and discover that “comedy is only tragedy plus time.”
