[ dinner/comedy ]
It's clichéd, but we Jews do find ourselves without much to do on Christmas Eve. Combining that with another, equally true, cliché, the Gershman Y returns with its evening of Chinese food and Jewish humor. The six-course dinner will be complemented by comedic sets by NYC-based Jewish comedians Dan Naturman, Jon Fisch and Marion Grodin, whose material will likely revolve around comparing Christmas to Hanukkah — always good for a crying-on-the-inside kind of laugh.
Fri., Dec. 24, 6-9 p.m., $65, Joy Tsin Lau Chinese Restaurant, 1026 Race St., 215-545-4400, gershmany.org.
