Simcha Levenberg
Born in Washington DC and bred in New Jersey, Simcha is our only comedian who also doubles as a Rabbi. A self-dubbed spiritual gangster, he draws out the comedic side of sprituality, G-d, world religion, meditation, drugs, as well as the counter-culture, music, and anything written by Tom Robbins. We are happy to welcome Simcha back to the festival to, once again, press the reset button on all stereotypes: Jewish, Rabbinic or otherwise.
Take a look at his website!
