Its said that Catholic girls are closet sluts, Protestant girls are sexually repressed, and Jewish girls won't swallow because its not kosher. While most women would be offended by such off-color religious humor, the ladies in the vaudeville-style show Nice Jewish Girls Gone Bad likely wouldnt bat an eyelash.
We have a healthy following of non-Jews. I'm really not sure why, jokes ringleader Susannah The Goddess Perlman. One look at the groups Web site, which features clips of everything from pole dancing to jokes about paying the band in blowjobs, and it's not hard to guess. (The band in question, by the way, is called The Four Skins.) While there are references to gefilte fish, Passover, and bat mitzvahs, the bawdy language is pretty universal -- and, notes Perlman, even the President is somewhat versed in Jewish tradition these days. Obama's Seder was probably like 30 minutes, instead of 30 hours like ours was, she quips. We had Seder last night, and my brother brings out shadow puppets.
