I wasn't at the performance in East Jerusalem, but I know people who were. Thebottom line was the organisers didn't prep the comics and/or the comics were self-absorbed enough to think that their comedy transcended all cultures, ages, races etc. Either way, to blame the audience for their not finding the comics funny is arrogant and absurd. If people don't laugh at you, it's because you are not funny (to them).
