Mr. Media is recorded live before a studio audience of kibitzers who will sit through this interview hoping that the nosh afterward will be worth it ? in the NEW new media capital of the world? St. Petersburg, Florida!
Fortunately for my wife and I, we never had to settle for someone “like” him — we got the original. And trust me, no one is more original than this Rhode Island native, one-time dirty magazine thief, husband, father and rabbi… turned standup comedian–seriously!
I’ve told this story before, but Mimi and I first made contact with Bob almost 20 years ago, before we became parents. We’ve been to his Vermont home, visited with him in Florida and seen his show several times. He is a warm, wonderful man with the gift of observation, storytelling and a clean sense of humor that fits him?and audiences?beautifully.
You can LISTEN to this interview with comedian RABBI BOB ALPER, author of THANKS. I NEEDED THAT. AND OTHER STORIES OF THE SPIRIT, by clicking the audio player above!
That, and he bears an uncanny resemblance to Steve Martin.
Several years ago, Bob adapted some of the funniest moments from his standup act into a book of cartoons, A Rabbi Confesses. That led to a more serious book of essays, Life Doesn’t Get Any Better Than This.
Now he published what is easily his best book yet, Thanks. I Needed That. And Other Stories of the Spirit. It is a delightful collection of essays of irony, humor and human moments that no one could capture as well as my friend Bob.
I recommend his new book as something you will enjoy and profit from reading no matter what your religion. And I’m so proud to still call him my friend after all these years.
