A diverse crowd filled the hall at Jerusalem’s Beit Shmuel anticipating an evening of stand-up comedy dealing with social issues in Israel.

The event was initiated by the New Israel Fund and Beit Hillel to mark the third anniversary of the social protests.

One by one, seven young comedians went on stage, each focusing on a different aspect of living in Israel.

From single life in the big city to the pains of public transportation, from the cost of living (Israelis favorite subject to vent on) to being a religious-feminist woman in Jerusalem, everything was received with laughs and cheers.

The main act for the night was Tal Friedman, admired comedian and TV personality.

He gave his all – singing made-up songs with his guitar and cracking up the crowd with parenting theories and recountings of human faults. He also had everyone participating in an activity where the crowd was split into three groups who were required to make cat, dog and cow sounds in harmony.

Once Friedman had the crowd laughing, he turned to the reason why everyone had gathered for the event in the first place. As he stepped off the stage, he invited the entire crowd to pose with him and express their disapproval of the “selfie” phenomenon by posing with “not so friendly” hand gestures.
