Moshe Kasher talks in hysterics. It comes in fits, veiled in a cheeky, smarter-than-you arrogance. He mouths off where others would revert to self-deprecation, and his comedy is a string of what-the-fuck observations/accusations. Like when he lays down his ground rules for stand-up: “If at any point you do become offended, that’s just you being a bitch.” But he’s not without his charms—or his accolades. The West Coast-bred comedian has won “Best of Fest” at the Aspen Rooftop Comedy Festival, and Everyone You Know Is Going To Die, And Then You Are was named one of the top 20 comedy albums of 2009 on iTunes. Most recently, he released a bitterly funny autobiography, Kasher In The Rye, about his maligned youth as a drug and alcohol addict, mental patient, and petty criminal.
