I just watched the first episode of the new web series YidLife Crisis: by Montrealers Eli Batalion and Jamie Elman. The series of five-minute videos promising “Sex, drugs, milk and meat. All in Yiddish,” is absolutely brilliant and hilarious.
The Times of Israel did a great piece on the series, it’s worth a read.
I have had the great pleasure of working with Eli several times over the past 15 years on various projects including theatre (JOB: The Hip Hop Musical) and film (The Legend of Beaver Damn). Both were in partnership with the equally talented Jerome Sable. Their recent feature slasher musical, Stage Fright, featuring Meat Loaf, was released in May of this year.

I am so proud to have worked with such a comic genius, congrats Eli, looking forward to watching the rest of the series!
