Joel Chasnoff is not your grandfather’s Jewish comedian!

A Chicago native and former Lone Soldier in the IDF, Joel has performed his unique brand of clean, Israel-positive comedy for more than 1,000 Jewish communities in ten countries.

He is the author of four books, including the bestselling memoir The 188th Crybaby Brigade about his experience as a Lone Soldier in the Israeli army, and the forthcoming Israel 201 (see www.Israel201.com).

In Israel 201, Joel and his co-author Benji Lovitt pull back the curtain to unveil a more complete and comprehensive portrait of Israel that extends beyond the typical Israel narrative. 

In the words of former prime minister Ehud Barak, whose effusive blurb appears on the back cover: “This wonderful book will show you the Israel you didn’t know you didn’t know.”  

The book has received advanced praise from some of the biggest names in the Jewish world, including a front- and back-cover blurbs from Mayim Bialik, Yossi Klein Halevi, and David Broza.

Joel currently lives in Ra’anana, Israel, with his Israeli wife and their four kids.
