An unashamedly Jewish comedy chat show where all are welcome!
Jew Talkin' To Me? is hosted by award winning comedians, Rachel Creeger and Philip Simon, and produced by Russell Balkind. Each show features two guests from the entertainment industry sharing their views on a variety of topics connected to modern Jewish life in a secular world, as well as their memories of growing up Jewish.
Both Philip and Rachel are well known as Jewish comedians on both the mainstream and community circuit and our guest list includes stand-up comedians, presenters, broadcasters, journalists and writers who are Jewish, have some Jewish heritage, or a Jewish connection.
Philip and Rachel have been collaborating for a few years, but who are we as individuals?

    Jew Talkin' To Me? 7th October Update with Producer Russell

    Jew Talkin' To Me? 7th October Update with Producer Russell

    Join Jewish Comedians Rachel Creeger & Philip Simon for their comedy podcast, a chat show about all things Jewish, produced by Russell Balkind. This week we're putting out a sort of holding episode reflecting on life as a British Jew since the terrorist attacks of 7th October in which over 1200 Israelis were killed and more than 200 hostages taken by Hamas. It's the day that marked the start of a conflict that has claimed thousands of innocent lives, and affected Jewish people around the world.
    We aren't political, that's never what the show was meant to be, but we are a podcast that explores Judaism and our relationship with everything associated with that. This episode marks where we are 100 days on from that atrocious day in which, for so many people, everything changed.
    Follow US on social media and don't forget to let us know what you think about the show.

    Mara is an American actress and writer, most noted for her roles in Hollywood blockbusters Mrs. Doubtfire, Miracle on 34th Street and Matilda. After appearing in a series of guest roles in numerous TV series, Mara Wilson retired from acting to pursue a writing career. Her play ‘Sheeple’ was produced in 2013 for the New York International Fringe Festival. Throughout her career, she has been nominated for, and won, several awards, including the Young Star Award for her performance in the film ‘Matilda’ and the Showest Award in 1995 for Young Star of the Year. Lately Mara has mainly enjoyed a career in voiceovers, including playing a recurring voice role in the animated series ‘BoJack Horseman’ and appearing in various web series.
    She is also the author of two books: 
    ‘Where Am I Now?: True Stories of Girlhood and Accidental Fame’
    A former child actor, Mara has always felt a little young and out of place: as the only kid on a film set full of adults, the first daughter in a house full of boys, a Valley girl in New York and a neurotic in California, and a grown-up the world still remembers as a little girl. Tackling everything from what she learned about sex on the set of Melrose Place, to discovering in adolescence that she was no longer “cute” enough for Hollywood, these essays chart her journey from accidental fame to relative (but happy) obscurity. 
    Good Girls Don’t
    A coming-of- age memoir that bravely examines both the friendships Wilson formed as a child actor in Hollywood and the complex family relationships that shaped her.

    For twenty years, Sony Award-Winner, Russ Kane, was the voice of Capital Radio’s ‘Flying Eye’, forming an on-air partnership with Chris Tarrant to create the most listened-to commercial radio show in the world, with a daily audience in excess of 4 million. Today, Russ can be heard on BBC Radio London, where his weekly, hour-long news reviews have earned a further loyal following, and on TalkRadio.
    In January 2019, Russ joined forces with Howard Jameson on Women’s Radio Station and to create Men’s Radio Station.  These revolutionary global internet radio stations aim to provide a non-judgmental space  in which men and women can ‘Really Talk’. Russ’s  goal remains to remove the stigma that surrounds mental health and to improve how it is addressed in society.
    Russ Kane’s one-man stand-up show, ‘Kaned Laughter’ has played to sell-out audiences in London and Los Angeles. He appeared at world-famous Edinburgh Fringe in 2019. His first novel,  ‘The Gate Keeper’ - a dark tale of good vs evil, redemption, sacrifice and Jack Daniels, was published in Spring 2019, to rave reviews.  The second novel is currently under-way.
