Old Man Crush

For those of you who may or may not know, I do a weekly comedy podcast with my sister, Alison Goldstein Lebovitz, who also is the TV host for PBS’ The A List. On our latest episode “Gefilte Fish is the 11th Plaque” we somehow meander into a conversation about our #oldmancrushes — which I’m pretty much sure stemmed from her giving a behind the scenes of her interview with Back to the Future’s Crispin Glover.

Who is on your Old Man Crush list? And when you think of him, are you thinking of the OG version or the current? My top tier crushes are Harrison Ford, Liam Neeson and Jeff Goldblum — who I know is an acquired taste so to speak. Alison’s old man crush is pretty shocking. Spoiler alert: It’s NOT Crispin Glover.

Find out who her crush is on the latest episode of Sis & Tell wherever you may get your podcasts or click here for iTunes.

The Brisket Belt

Being a southern Jew, it is mandated that I eat brisket. Though I may be a bit confused about the origins of brisket -- Did it originate in a Jewish schtetl in Eastern Europe 200 years ago or in that defunct BBQ shack on the way to the Florida panhandle? -- one thing is for sure, brisket is delicious. Accordingly brisket is also the perfect symbol to encapsulate both my southern and Jewish heritage, which is why I came up with the name The Brisket Belt for a touring stand up comedy series I'm producing with fellow comedian David "HT" Rosen.  

Our first show kicks off on Saturday, December 16th 8pm at Highland Inn Ballroom and Lounge in Atlanta, Georgia.  You can get tickets at www.freshtix.com/events/brisketbelt. Read up on details about it in this Atlanta Jewish Times article: http://atlantajewishtimes.timesofisrael.com/atlanta-will-laugh-for-shelter/

We'll also be traveling to Tallahassee, Florida, my own hometown Birmingham, Alabama and making our way up to New York where HT grew up.  Stay tuned for details!
