““World of JEWTOPIA was a smash at the Kimmel Center! We sold 3,000 seats, over $136,000 in sales and people and the critics loved the show!

We plan to bring the guys and their show back to Phily next year!”

Jill Ziplow, Cultural Arts Director. JCC of Greater Hartford, CT
"In my career as the cultural arts director of the Dallas JCC, I have NEVER seen an event sell out as quickly as JEWTOPIA, nor have I ever sold almost 700 seats in three days! The guys and the show were absolutely fantastic! People young and old were laughing hysterically for two hours and they received a full standing ovation! The event was a SMASH and we raised a ton of money for the JCC! I recommend that any JCC looking for a fantastic and fun evening of entertainment bring WORLD OF JEWTOPIA to town!!"
Judy Cohn, Cultural Arts Director, Dallas JCC
“Everyone had a great time, and I thank you both for your hard work! It was a great way to end our season and a huge success as we sold 1200 tickets! The audience was very happy and we are still getting great feedback. I will let people know how well you did. I think you are a great bet for most JCC's who have the budget to present performances.
Barrie Keller, Arts and Ideas Director - Leventhal-Sidman JCC, Newton, MA
“It was a great weekend and we have never sold as many tickets for an event, EVER! We priced seats at $36 and $50 and brought in 500 people in the course of a weekend to the JCC for the event. We had positive feedback from our members – they loved seeing a real quality show so close to home and not having to travel to NYC - and coming together with all of their friends in the JCC was a wonderful feeling! The show was wonderful and I can’t recommend it more highly!”
Wendy Bennett and Gary Lipman, Cultural Arts Director and Director, JCC Stamford
"I am writing you all to tell you about the WORLD OF JEWTOPIA. Our cultural art events NEVER exceeded more the 250 people: even for Alan Zweibel. We did two shows, Saturday and Sunday to almost 900 people. The guys were easy to work with, easy to relate to, and wonderful performers. They even have a website that includes a media download kit that has brochures, flyers, press releases and pictures – making it very easy to promote and not adding a ton of work to your marketing department. We charged $44.50 for the public and $38.50 for JCC members. And again – we packed the house, both nights. If you are looking for a great show to bring to your community, I highly recommend The World of Jewtopia. Please feel free to call me if you have any questions."
Jennifer Lewis, Cultural Arts Director, Irvine JCC

"We can't thank you enough for bringing so much laughter to our Festival! People are still laughing about all your 'shtick' from the restaurants to airplanes to your mother's freezer and more! To sum it up, the theater was filled, the crowd was rolling in their seats, bought tons of books, and told their friends. What else could you and I ask? Come back again anytime!"
Barbara Winnik, JCC of Greater Washington
"The perfect combination of humor and wit, Jewtopia is the cure for the common Hannukah gift! Bryan and Sam gave an energetic presentation that had our audience in stitches! Thank you for reminding us of "Petchah," teaching us how to build a toilet paper nest in public restrooms, and testing our restaurant table selection skills. But most of all, thank you for putting it all in one easy-to-use guide no Jew should be without!"
Shira Greenberg, David Posnack JCC, Davie FL
"UNSTOPPABLE! Hilarious! One of the biggest theatrical hits!"
The New York Times
"Hilarious! Raucous! Bryan Fogel and Sam Wolfson know their territory well and assault it with unflagging comic energy! An equal-opportunity satire. JEWTOPIA is Outrageously funny!"
The Los Angeles Times
"Entertaining!...Wild!...Raucous!...Wolfson and Fogel fill the stage with overwhelming energy.they come across as natural clowns, alternately vulnerable, charming and animated. Certain to hit home with ALL observers, whatever their religion!"
"After a quarter century of Neil Simon and his imitators, the playwrights redeem the formula with edge! Displaying a commercial sensibility that is almost obscene, they combine the swaggering generation y, nailing two demographics at once! The result is irresistible!"
