Nice Jewish Girls Gone Bad returns to Joe’s Pub just in time for Purim. The Badass Sisters of Shtick are back for a one night engagement to celebrate Purim, Shabbat and Sisterhood. Sixteen years ago NJGGB started at Joe’s Pub, a refreshing mix of comedy, music, spoken-word and show-stopping burlesque, featuring the gals who learned to smoke at Hebrew School, got drunk at their Bat-Mitzvahs and would rather have more schtuppa than the chupah, featuring performers seen on Comedy Central, HBO and Late Night TV. These badass chosen chicks boldly dare to deconstruct years of tradition, expectations and guilt in a fast-paced vaudeville extravaganza.You don't have to be Jewish to love these broads.

Nice Jewish Girls Gone Bad will donate proceeds from the upcoming performance to benefit New Light Congregation in Pittsburgh, PA. On October 27, 2018, New Light Congregation was one of the 3 synagogues affected by the tragic shooting that took the lives of 11 innocent souls. NJGGB's host and creator Susannah Perlman's brother, Rabbi Jonathan Perlman was in the building at the shooting. He was able to get to a few of his congregants and himself to a safety. Unfortunately 3 of his congregants were amongst the 11 victims. These men were pillars of New Light Congregation - Dan Stein, Richard Gottfried, and Melvin Wax. These men were so giving and selfless - they enthusiastically volunteered at every turn to keep the light burning and the spirit of New Light alive. NJGGB would like to help New Light rebuild and to keep the spirit of Dan, Rich, and Mel alive.
