    Funny, He Doesn’t Look Like a Christopher

    by Rebecca Honig Friedman

    In the film Circumcise Me, lapsed Catholic-turned-Orthodox-Jewish-comedian Yisrael Campbell shares the life story that inspired his hilarious comedy act, but on a recent trip to New York City, Campbell revealed some tidbits about his life that you won’t see in the film.

    We caught up with Campbell at his alma mater, the Circle in The Square Drama School, to find out how he went from being a struggling actor named Christopher in Los Angeles to a successful comedian named Yisrael in Jerusalem.
    You can also see the video at full size on your television screen as part of the latest episode of the TJC Original Series TJC Movie Talk.
    Host Alana Newhouse provides the voice over here.
