Temple Emanu-El is pleased to announce that Rabbi Bob Alper — known as "the world's only practicing clergyman doing stand-up comedy (intentionally!)" — will perform on Thursday, May 1, at 7:30 p.m. "Hilarious, Gentile-friendly and 100 percent clean, Rabbi Alper performs sold-out comedy shows all over North America, is featured daily on Sirius/XM satellite radio and has appeared on The Today Show, ABC Evening News, Good Morning America, Comedy Central, Showtime, and CNN," a news release points out. Alper's comedy performance at Temple Emanu-El four years ago "was a sold-out sen- sation, and event organizers are delighted to welcome him (and his new material!) back again," the release adds. The Temple is located at 151 McIntosh Road in Sarasota. General admission tickets for the show are $20 if purchased by April 25; they will be $25 at the door. The performance will be preceded by a dessert reception with the comedian at 7 p.m.; tickets for that event are $36 and include reserved seating for the show, the release notes. Adults and children age 11 and older are welcome. Paid reservations may be mailed to Temple Emanu-El Comedy Show, 151 McIntosh Road, Sarasota, Florida 34232. The names of people attending and the types of tickets being pur- chased ($36 dessert reception tickets or $20 general admission tickets) should be included. For more information, call 379-1997. Rabbi Bob Alper will perform again at Temple Emanu-El on May 1. Contributed photo STAND-UP COMIC RABBI ALPER TO PERFORM AT TEMPLE EMANU-EL RELIGION BRIEFS
