Marketing "Jew-O-Rama", the Jewish compilation stand up show, to help promote Jewish comedy at this year's Edinburgh Fringe.

by Philip Simon - Jew-O-Rama in Edinburgh, United Kingdom

For the past 8 years Jew-O-Rama, the Jewish comedy compilation show, has been a staple part of life at the Edinburgh Fringe. Given the current situation in Israel and Gaza, we weren't sure if the show should go ahead this year, but after much consideration we decided it was more important than ever to not just hide away. We want to place Jews and Jewish comedy front and centre throughout this incredible city.

Therefore we want to invest in a really noticeable presence on the streets of Edinburgh. We are already working with the official suppliers of all the on-street marketing at the Fringe to ensure we have banners and billboards in prime spots around the city. Doing this will enable the show, enjoyed by thousands of Jewish and non-Jewish audience members over the years to say, loud and proud:

"THE JEWS ARE BACK IN TOWN!"

We always like to pay our acts, so any additional funds will be used to increase the money we're able to spend. Each day we have various comedians who perform on the show on a rolling basis (don't worry, there is always at least one non-Jewish comedian to offer balance). This gives them a platform to advertise their own shows, bringing even more Jewish comedy to audiences throughout August.

Blame Us for Missing a Family Simcha

Fed up with having to attend simchas or family gatherings? Wouldn't it be great to know that you can use us as the reason you couldn't be there. You can even call on us to formally back up your story if your mother's out for blood and needs us to verify you were reading to sick children, helping the elderly with their (kosher) groceries, or training to be a rabbi! If they're not happy, then we're just a strongly-worded email away!

Eternal Entry into the Book of Life

Every year during the High Holidays we're given a chance to secure our place in the Book of Life, recording those of us who are "righteous before god". Using our hotline to the big boss we'll make sure you have an annual Get Out Of Jail Free Pass. You'll get a certificate, but there's no need to show it or anything...we'll know.

I've always loved the more creative & humorous side of writing & for my wedding I wrote bespoke limericks for every family.
