Jerry Sadowitz Run Extended in Soho – Great Reviews

UK’s Independent features Jerry Sadowitz in today’s edition.

Comedy, when it is done well, is much like magic in that an audience
thinks that a punchline, like a rabbit, has appeared out of nowhere.

In recent
years Jerry Sadowitz has put the two disciplines side by side in his shows and
has thereby gone from enfant terrible to more of an irate Tommy
Cooper-with-teeth. Of the two Sadowitz has intimated on numerous occasions that
the magic makes him happier.

It is not surprising that his constant stream of
vitriol might weigh him down a little after 20 years of it, but the bile still
rolls off the tongue easily and his unrelenting profanity still punctuates his
act.

Meanwhile, he frowns upon the idea that magic is any less edgy than stand
up: “The reason why magic is not popular is because nobody likes to be
fooled.”

Mr. Sadowitz is well-known and appreciated (by many) for his unique approach
to performing.

The Independent writer put it best as only a British writer could
do: “Lurching between misanthrope and magician tempers the Sadowitz schtick.”
They write real pretty.

The article notes his multiple-personalities blend smoothly and not so
smoothly into his routine.

The comic asides that come while he changes foam balls into items of
fruit, or selects the right card using a battery operated hand, generally work:
“If you do these tricks in Glasgow you always get some drunk wanting to shuffle
the cards – and I was doing a trick with a rabbit at the time.”

If you haven’t already, visit Mr. Sadowitz’ brilliant web site ironically
located at: http://www.jerrysadowitz.com/

Please note while the site is an incredible melange of great substance,
outstanding writing, really bad (but in a good way) line drawings, and fantastic
use of frames for meaningful navigation, it is not for those under 18-years-old.

Mr. Sadowitz stays true to himself with lines, words, and suggestions
inappropriate for young readers or those who might be offended by four of the
seven forbidden words as set forth in the famous U.S. Supreme Court case
regarding George Carlin. (FCC
v. Pacifica Foundation
, 438 U.S. 726 (1978)).

No, we will not give you the password to the magician’s only section nor will
we speculate on the password.

We’re twisted, sick, and morally bankrupt so we loved the wit and look
forward to the products we ordered. But that’s just us. Your sensitivities may
differ.
