Alex Edelman’s Just for Us


Additional performances added December 19–23, on sale now

Please, allow this sly, daring, genuinely congenial comic to talk his way into your theatrical life.


One of the best things I’ve seen in the [Mark Taper Forum] in years.

Expertly crafted by one of comedy’s most distinctive voices, this singular theatrical experience is an exploration of identity and our collective capacity for empathy—and it’s also “belly-laugh funny!” (The New York Times). In the wake of a string of anti-Semitic rhetoric pointed in his direction online, standup comic Edelman decides to go straight to the source; specifically, Queens, where he covertly attends a meeting of White Nationalists and comes face-to-face with the people behind the keyboards. What happens next forms the backbone of the shockingly relevant, utterly hilarious, and only moderately perspirant stories that comprise Just for Us.
