Moshe Kasher w/ Karl Hess and Jackson Jones
Tonight @ Comedy Café, 8 p.m., 10:15 p.m.
Comedian Moshe Kasher's thick glasses and effete mannerisms seem to tease a much different, softer style of comedy than the kind he actually delivers. Instead of riffing on the neuroses you might expect, Kasher barrels forward with a surprisingly aggressive brand of comedy, berating homophobes and assailing religious institutions in between long, profane diatribes about his sex life. Kasher's confrontational energy came across on his hilarious 2009 album Everyone You Know Is Going To Die, And Then You Are, which he followed with appearances on “Chelsea Lately,” “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon” and Comedy Central's “Live at Gotham.”
