Super funny Israeli comedians you have to meet!

The three guys we are going to introduce you to, make a large part of Israeli society laugh very, very loud.

Adir Miller

We talked about Adir Miller when we mentioned some of the best Israeli TV shows. Besides being the creator and main character in Ramzor, Adir is one of the funniest comedians Israel has ever had.

His shows are mainly about doing improvisation and talking to the audience about their problems, lives, and things that they are currently struggling with. So, if you are in Israel and about to attend an Adir Miller show, get ready, because you might be the one he jokes about throughout the entire session.

As an Ashkenazi Jew, he jokes a lot about Polish mothers, and about the kind of father and husband he is. Right after ending Ramzor, Adir came back with another show that makes fun of his own family dilemmas and structure.

In order to be closer to the Israeli people, one of the main health provider companies in the country, hired Adir as their main public figure, creating ads and announcements in a very funny tone of voice. Yes, it got to that point!

Watch, here and now, an extraordinary performance he gave in Tel Aviv last year…

Israel Katorza

Israel Katorza is one of the most famous and admired comedians of all time in Israel. He was born in France and moved to Israel when he was very young. He is very funny and all the TV shows want to have him as a guest for at least a few minutes.

Israel Katorza is not only an amazing comedian, but also a stunning actor. He played in the Israeli film “Sof ha’olam smola”, among other films from the Land of Milk and Honey.

He is known also as a writer and producer. Many new Israel comedians use Katorza’s talent as a screenwriter, to help them achieve success in the comedy industry. Take a look at one of his most famous stand-up comedy sessions:

Benji Lovitt

We wanted to bring you this exceptional example to show you one very important thing: Everything is possible!

Benji Lovitt is an American-Israeli comedian, who was born and raised in the United States, a place in which he did a lot of stand-up comedy and acting lessons, and decided to emigrate to Israel to do the exact same thing.

The issue was that in Israel, at least at first, he did not have either the language or the understanding of the society to create relevant and successful shows. But time does its job, and nowadays, Benji has found his audience and is currently performing both in Israel and internationally… mainly in English, but using the Israeli culture and language as a humoristic tool for his scripts.

We invite you to watch an interview Benji gave to a local Israeli news network. If you like comedy and you appreciate work done with a lot of effort, you have to meet Benji Lovitt.

Laughter and Hebrew are just around the corner!

Today, learning Hebrew is easier and more fun than ever before. There are multiple paths you can walk in order to become a master in the language of the Startup Nation. If you want to make sure to receive classes from the best instructor available, check out the live online Hebrew courses offered by the Rosen School of Hebrew.
