Dana Friedman is, in all likelihood, New York’s first Orthodox Jewish, transgender comic. She is the producer of Queernucopia: An Evening of LGBT and Allied Comedy Goddesses and Heathens , Right Down The Middle (East), (no missionaries, just funny positions), which brings together Muslim, Jewish, Israeli, Arab, and Palestinian standup comics, LOL Nidrei (Unforgivably Naughty Jewish Comedy) which was featured in The Forward, and, for the fourth consecutive year: Orthomocks Jews, A Pre-Purim Standup Romp. Dana was also the producer and a co-writer of FunOrthodox: An Evening of LGBT+ Jewish Entertainment, hosted by Mayim Bialik. She was selected for She-Devil Comedy Festival’s “Best Of The Fest”, and the New York Underground Comedy Festival. She has been a guest on Tell Me Everything with John Fugelsang on SiriusXM, and appeared with or opened for Janeane Garofalo, Lizz Winstead, Yanis Pappas, Christian Finnegan, Julia Scotti, Tim Dillon, as well as other major headliners at clubs and theaters all over North America.
He started performing standup comedy while attending Yeshiva University. There, he won the school’s annual standup comedy contest in 2009, and was the Co-Creator and Head Writer for The Quipster, Yeshiva University’s first satire publication.
Since then, Eli has been performing at comedy clubs in New York City, college campuses along the East Coast, synagogue dinners, Passover programs, and Jewish events where there’s food.
Some may find Eli’s material a bit too Jewish, but with a name like “Eli Lebowicz,” he wasn’t really trying to hide that anyway.
