The Jerusalem Post sat down with top Israeli comedians Shahar Hason and Yohay Sponder for a few minutes of comic relief from Israel's current events.

With a Post paper in hand, the two took jabs at Trump and his tweets, public attacks on the Netanyahu family, the American obsession with football and more.

Hason and Sponder perform stand up comedy in English every Monday evening in Tel Aviv as part of their series "Funny Monday," that attracts not only olim (new immigrants) and tourists, but Israelis with basic English as well.
