Film: Quality Balls: The David Steinberg Story
Evelyn Rubenstein Jewish Community Center
Houston, TX
Share this event:

Directed by Barry Avrich
Canada, 2013, 75 min, English, Documentary

At the height of his popularity, David Steinberg was one of the world's best known stand-up comics. Leaving behind his Yeshiva studies to join Chicago's legendary Second City, he never looked back. He appeared on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson dozens of times; yet, his irreverent take on religion caused CBS to cancel The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour. Priceless performance clips and TV directing credits (i.e. Seinfeld, Curb Your Enthusiasm) are paired with backstage stories from Alan Zweibel, Larry David and others, illuminating Steinberg's place in the pantheon of comedy. "Overdue biography of a satirist and provocateur who influenced and entertained generations." -Atlanta Jewish Film Festival
