Bob Alper is the only rabbi in the country who regularly addresses congregations that require a cover charge and a two-drink minimum. Sound funny? You bet it is. Because Bob is the world's only practicing clergyman doing stand-up comedy... intentionally. His fresh, contemporary, and totally "unorthodox" style has been delighting audiences from Hollywood's IMPROV to London theatres. And his unique brand of humor appeals to everyone - from a synagogue or church crowd to a corporate event to a typical Saturday night comedy club.

A native of Providence, Rhode Island, Bob is a graduate of Lehigh University, was ordained at
Hebrew Union College in Cincinnati, and is the first Jewish person ever to earn a doctorate from
the Princeton Theological Seminary. He has served congregations in Buffalo and Philadelphia,
where he continues to conduct High Holiday services.
