What you've found here is my own extremely small corner of the Internet where you can find imagery, news, and video associated with my life as an actor and all-around creative person. Thank you for coming!
At long last, the hilarious and deeply off-kilter comedy webseries UNTOLD GENIUS has begun streaming!!
In this 10-episode series, I star as Art Fisher, a...determined man who dreams of launching himself to fame and fortune as a documentary filmmaker, telling the stories of American culture's forgotten and fallen titans with a maximum of pathos and (hopefully) profit.
Chaos (gradually) ensues.
Making this show with creators Moshe Lobel and Etai Shuchatowitz has been one of the greatest adventures of my creative life. I am overjoyed that, at last, our show is ready to be shared with all of you.
Click here to start with Episode 1, and new episodes will be released in the coming weeks. Enjoy!!
In an unexpected and highly-welcome stroke of good fortune, I've joined the cast of an exciting new play premiering on January 12, CRAZY MESHUGGA HURRICANE EARTHQUAKE, produced by New Yiddish Rep and written by and starring Amy Coleman!
A Jewish woman at loose ends in her career becomes the advocate and caretaker for a young Hasidic man who suffers from acute paranoid schizophrenia. Their evolving friendship will challenge her sense of identity as well as her sense of herself.
The play is running at the East Village landmark Theater for the New City with performances at 8:00 PM through January 19th, and a Sunday matinee on January 16th at 3:00 pm.
I'll be playing a couple of supporting roles in the production, and it's a very dynamic play with a truly talented cast. Click here if you'd like to purchase tickets!
Later this January, I'll be starring as the LEAD in a comedic commercial for up-and-coming production house Jersey Filmmaker!
This short, 30-second ad will feature a leather jacket, bedazzled signage, and rough men in a rough environment.
No, I promise you, it's not that!
This will be a truly fun shoot, and I'm hopeful that the whole ad will be finished and released sometime this spring.
In very exciting news, I've very recently been cast in a LEAD role in the original World War 2 espionage drama ZUSMAN, written and produced by Alter Wagschal and Kingsville Performing Arts!
This high-budget theatrical production tells the story of a Polish Jew whose young son is taken captive by Nazi officers. His enemies then pressgang him into a risky espionage mission that will take him all the way to America, a land that still believes it can stand at a remove from the bloodshed and horror now engulfing Europe. Our hero will need all of his wits and courage in order to assuage the demands of his conscience as well as those of his son's captors.
Please note that I will NOT be playing our hero. Far from it. Instead, I will be playing Von Hauser, the Nazi head commander who has targeted Poland's Jews for destruction.
We begin rehearsing this show in February, with performances running April 18-20 in Rahway, New Jersey. More info to come soon! I'm beyond excited to begin this adventure, although this promises to be a rather dark experience for me, personally.
