Jewish Comedian Accuses LA Comedy Club of Canceling Purim Show ‘Because They Don’t Want to Support Israel’

Jewish comedian Stephen Glickman late Wednesday accused Burbank, California, comedy club Flappers of cancelling his all-Jewish pre-Purim show, scheduled for this Sunday, because club management did not want its venue used to support Israel.

On Twitter, Glickman said: “The Purim stand up show at @FlappersComedy has been cancelled because the owners said they do not support benefits that support Israel.”

“Everyone should have the right to believe what they want but a COMEDY CLUB being ANTI ISRAEL is disgraceful and as a jewish man I am hurt!” he tweeted further.

Glickman, who is active on Twitter, told his 283,000 followers: “I’ll be reaching out to my friends @JDLdotORG @ADL_National and @TMZ to expose @FlappersComedy for being Anti Israel.”

He responded to fellow comedian Chris Neff’s question: “‘@chrisneffcomedy: WTF happened bro?’ @FlappersComedy cancelled a Jewish stand-up show because they don’t want to support Israel. So insane.”

On the Flapper’s Comedy Club website, another show, headlined by Comedy Central comedian Tom Clark, had replaced Glickman’s pre-Purim event for the Sunday night, 7PM slot.

At the time of publication, the club had yet to respond to an emailed query from The Algemeiner.
