Robin Williams’ “Jesus Was a Jew” Schtick

The terribly sad news of Robin Williams’ death led me—and probably you, too—down the bittersweet memory lane of YouTube this afternoon. Here’s a hilarious clip I’d never seen before (though aficionados will no doubt know it), in which Williams riffs on Jesus’ Jewishness. Enjoy.

People say to me Jesus wasn’t Jewish. Of course he was Jewish! Thirty years old, single, living at home with his parents, come on! Working in his father’s business, his mother thought he was God’s gift — he’s Jewish! Give it up!
