Brett Gelman Is the Twisted Jewish Santa


When you hear a sketch called "Jewish Santa Is Coming," you probably think you know what you're going to get: a Rabbi dressed up like Santa, making a lot of references to dreidels and yarmulkes. But no, not this one. I'm not even sure how Santa is Jewish here. It's just Brett Gelman dressed up as Santa, being Brett Gelman.

    This morning, on the front of the local section I see this:

    Okay, so it’s for a charity program done by the police department, so Santa’s blue. But I could have sworn that was Hebrew embroidered on the fur trim of his czapka. Otoh, the headline read “Santa goes blue…” so I guess it could have been Gelman.
