Circumcise Me

Yisrael Campbell looks more like a rabbi than a comedian, but don't be fooled by the big black hat, frock coat and Hasidic side-curls. Born Chris Campbell, the son of an ex-nun and a Catholic school teacher, he converted to Judaism not once, but three times - Reform, Conservative and Orthodox. His spiritual journey began as a drug-drenched teenager in Philly and ended in Jerusalem among suicide bombs. So what's to laugh about? It's the way he tells it. This is a hilarious, searching story of one man's quest for spiritual enlightenment against the bewildering backdrop of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
