Shticky Situation

_(exerpted from original article)_
“A lot of people say to me, ‘Dave, how can you, an Orthodox Jew, use a Braun razor made in Germany?’ And I say, ‘Hey, give credit where it’s due: Those people know how to take the beards off of Jews.'” The crowd, seated in the Museum of Jewish Heritage in Lower Manhattan, winces. The show has been billed as “There’s Still a Fly in My Soup: An Evening of Young Jewish Comedy,” and it was a big hit, up until this point. The all-star lineup of downtown comics include regulars from Leno, Letterman, and Conan—acts that were far from G-rated, yet no one dared spook the Holocaust. That is, until David Deutsch steps on stage. “So I guess you don’t think the Holocaust is funny,” he apologizes. “But I gotta tell you, it killed them back in Poland.”

Meet the world’s worst Jewish comedian. Max Bialystock and Leo Bloomm couldn’t have dreamt this guy up if they were smoking crack. 33-year-old Deutch, a high school history teacher during the day, has been waiting for his big break in the comedy world since moving to New York from Milwaukee in 1994. Unfortunately, his funniest material is his resume: Highlights include a questionable stand-up routine that’s often booed off stage, dozens of unproduced screenplays (including a ‘Jewsploitation’ film called _Dolewite_), and a single press clip, which snarkily describes his act as an “exploration of the dark side of Holocaust humor.”
