Edgy, Thought-provoking, Irreverent, Hilarious, Entertaining

See it if excellent standup with a special New York bent will amuse you for an hour.

You don't have to be jewish to enjoy this terrific stand-up comedian

See it if A polished stand-up comic with great timing and delivery. He's a charmer who had us in stitches. Largely Jewish humor with universal appeal

Don't see it if you don't like stand-up. Very intelligent humor with belly laughs, too. His story about visiting a neo-Nazi meeting in Queens is priceless.

Time Out New York
December 8th, 2021

"4/5 Stars! His account of reactionary repartee serves as a framing device for a deeper dive into questions of identity and the limits of empathy. Edleman deftly interweaves disparate tales...into a portrait of the entertainer as a young Jewish man in a polarized society. But he does this without pulling any punchlines: The laughs are plentiful."

New York Theater
December 8th, 2021

I was initially puzzled as to why a man whose full name is David Yosef Shimon ben Elazar Reuven Alex Halevi Edelman would go to a meeting of white supremacist antisemites — unless he was a stand-up comedian who thought he could get a show out of it. And so he has…. leans more toward disparate jokes and funny stories than a focused comic narrative.

The Wrap
December 8th, 2021

"Edelman taps into much heftier material than his usual riffs about Koko, the sign-language-using gorilla...Throughout, Edelman emerges as a disarming charmer whom you might imagine could ingratiate himself — at least for a while — even with people who object to his very existence. And one who not only lived to tell the tale, but tells it with wit and flare. Can you believe it?"
