Israeli political satire served up in English
Human rights lawyer turned comedian Jeremie Bracka says that with satire, he can dig into nuances, take a stand on political issues and help audiences relieve the pressure of living in Israel.
Satire has long held a valued place in Israel’s public discourse. With a political situation that veers between grimly serious, to hysterically daft and back to tragic, Israelis need a pressure valve. What better way to try and come to terms with the political reality than by having a good belly laugh it?
