Thank you to all who helped make this years festival a huge hit! This year featured top-notch stand-up comedians from around the country, a community art exhibit examining how we see humor, a celebration of Global Belly Laugh Day, and a visit from an Israeli Dream Doctor – plus so much more! The 7th annual Twin Cities Jewish Humor Festival was overflowing with opportunities to laugh with friends and family.
