Last Resort

Last Resort is a series of new works by Robin Schwartzman inspired by the bygone era of the Borscht Belt. At its peak, the Catskills region in upstate New York had over 500 hotels that offered visitors fresh air, Kosher meals, nightly entertainment, swimming, dancing, golf, ice skating, and more. This summer getaway might best be known for the many famous Jewish comedians whose careers began in its glitzy nightclubs and lounges. The sculptures and prints of Last Resort will playfully explore ideas of tourism, extravagance and humor through the distinct lens of Jewish American culture during this time in history.

Sabes JCC Gallery

The gallery becomes a time machine to the bygone era of Borscht Belt resort night life. Local Jewish comedians will read some of the best, sappiest routines from the pioneers of stand up, accented by a drummer playing rimshot sounds after each punchline. Virgin versions of period appropriate drinks, tacky snacks, and laughter will be served.

These events are part of the 11th Annual Twin Cities Jewish Humor Festival. For more information, please visit
