Alper to perform comedy benefit in Putney
PUTNEY — Not every comedian happens to be an ordained rabbi with a doctorate from the Princeton Theological Seminary.
Bob Alper is, and he's performing in a special benefit performance for Next Stage Arts Project at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 19.
Alper, who lives in East Dorset, has performed to sold-out national and international audiences at the Montreal Comedy Festival, at New York's Chautauqua Institution and at comedy clubs including Hollywood's Improv and The Comedy Store. His career has taken a number of interesting turns, including working for years as "Comedy's Odd Couple" with the Egyptian-born Ahmed Ahmed.
Alper's solo 90-minute set at Next Stage will be fast-paced, and he is well known for his impeccable timing and material that's sharp, yet gentle and unhurtful.
