For This We Left Egypt?
Co-written with Dave Barry and Adam Mansbach

Has there ever been a Seder without that one guest who asks if the festive meal will last longer than our wandering in the desert? Or, a household that couldn’t use more Jewish humor? Zweibel’s parody of a Haggadah adapts the Passover observance with plenty of humor and a strong dose of irreverence.

An original Saturday Night Live writer, Alan Zweibel has won numerous Emmy Awards for his work in television, which also includes It’s Garry Shandling’s Show, Late Show with David Letterman, and Curb Your Enthusiasm. He collaborated with Billy Crystal on the Tony Award–winning play 700 Sundays, and he won the Thurber Prize for his novel The Other Shulman.
