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.
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.
