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?
