Laughing it up to benefit EMUNAH


Comedians Ophira Eisenberg, Barry Weintraub and Jon Fisch entertained the crowd of about 150 at the second annual EMUNAH of America – Five Towns chapter comedy night at the Backstage Nite Club in Woodmere on Feb. 2.

The $60 per person event raised a substantial amount, according to EMUNAH National Representative Linda Koegel. The money, will benefit more than 250 social services and educational programs.

Eisenberg is best known for her appearances on Comedy Central’s “Premium Blend” and “Fresh Faces of Comedy” shows.

Talk show radio host, sports television anchor and writer and producer and creator of programming for E! Entertainment Television, MGM TV and Comedy Central are on Weintraub’s resume.

Recently featured in Maxim Magazine, Fisch hosts the popular podcast, “In the Tank.” He was named one of Comedy Central’s fresh faces of comedy and one of Back Stage Magazine’s 10 standout stand-ups.
