It’s always a pleasure to see comedians we’ve been covering for years rise up through the ranks of the comedy world. And Moshe Kasher is of those people. At the end of 2009 (when we were still Punchline Magazine), we named him a Comic to Watch. And he’s since made us look like we know what we’re talking about (we do, by the way). Later this year, you’ll see him in his own one-hour stand-up special on Comedy Central. And today he released his first book, a memoir titled Kasher in the Rye: The True Tale of a White Boy from Oakland Who Became a Drug Addict, Criminal, Mental Patient, and Then Turned 16.
I finished up the book last week, and I have to say: it doesn’t disappoint. This thing is a proper memoir, not just a funny book. And I got to sit down with Moshe recently to discuss said book (and he even did a mini reading!)– as well as some other things, namely pornography. So, sit back and enjoy. And be sure to buy Kasher in the Rye. You won’t be sorry.
