2018 TWIN CITIES JEWISH HUMOR FESTIVAL presents
DIASPORA BOY: COMICS ON CRISIS IN AMERICA AND ISRAEL
BREW-HA-HA with WRITER & ARTIST ELI VALLEY
And Special Guests, THE CHOSEN FEW
LOCATION: BLACK STACK BREWERY, 755 Prior Ave North St. Paul, MN
The St. Paul JCCs Books & Brews series combines with the Jewish Humor Festival to present Books and Brewhaha, an evening with writer/artist Eli Valley and his first full-scale anthology, Diaspora Boy, which provides an essential retrospective of America and Israel at a turning point. Valleys work has been featured in The Nation, The New Republic, The Village Voice, The Nib, The Guardian, The Daily Beast, Gawker and elsewhere. His art has been labeled ferociously repugnant by Commentary and hilarious by The Comics Journal. With meticulously detailed line work and a rich satirical palette peppered with perseverating turtles, xenophobic Jedi knights, sputtering superheroes, mutating golems and zombie billionaires, Diaspora Boy unmasks the hypocrisy and horror behind the headlines.
Warming up the crowd for this fun event will be none other than returning favorites and local Jew-ish improv troupe, The Chosen Few.
