OK, so there is this guy who lives in Brick. He’s an actor recently seen in the film “Not Fade Away”. He has played a police officer on TV and many other roles during his as yet unheralded career. Perhaps the best role he has been given is that of Comedy Fundraising Machine. Jeff Norris has entertained crowds with his classic impressions, his perfect comic timing and his genial nature that just makes you want to like him. In a world of manufactured comedians and artists, he is the real thing – working in the trenches of comedy performing wherever he goes. When you walk into a Jeff Norris show you may have bills, stress or sorrow on your plate. When you leave you take nothing with you but your hurting cheeks, the tears in your eyes from the constant barrage of stories and one-liners and a feeling that you have just seen something special. For a good evening of fun and laughter, make sure to mark your calendar for this one.

Moishe Plotnik’s Chinese Laundry- A True Story!

Posted on November 14th, 2018 · Chinese Music/Events/Other · No Comments »

* Moishe Plotnik’s Chinese Laundry- A True Story!

Walking through San Francisco’s Chinatown, a tourist from the Midwest was enjoying the artistry of all the Chinese restaurants, shops, signs and banners…..

When he turned a corner and saw a building with the sign ‘Moishe Plotnik’s Chinese Laundry.’

‘Moishe Plotnik?’ he wondered. “How does that belong in Chinatown?”

He walked into the shop and saw a fairly standard looking drycleaner, although he could see that the proprietors were clearly aware of the uniqueness of the store name as there were baseball hats, T-shirts and coffee mugs emblazoned with the logo “Moishe Plotnik’s Chinese Laundry.”The tourist selected a coffee cup as a conversation piece to take back to his office.. Behind the counter was a smiling old Chinese gentleman who thanked him for his purchase.

The tourist asked, “Can you explain how this place got a name like ‘Moishe Plotnik’s Chinese Laundry?’

The old man answered, “Ah..Everybody ask me that. It name of owner.”

Looking around, the tourist asked, “Is he here now?”

“It’s me, Me him!” replied the old man.

“Really? You’re Chinese. How did you ever get a Jewish name like Moishe Plotnik?”

“Is simple,” said the old man. “Many, many year ago I come to this country. I standing in line at ‘ Documentation Center of Immigration.’ Man in front of me was Jewish man from Poland .”

“Lady at counter look at him and say to him, “What your name?”

He say to her, “Moishe Plotnik.”

Then she look at me and say, What’s Your Name?

I say…………Sam Ting!

A favorite on the nationally syndicated Bob and Tom Radio Show. He has appeared on Late Night with Conan Obrien, Comedy Central, CBS, ABC, FOX, MTV and CMT. Greg Hahn has parlayed his absurdly energetic, all out style of physical humor, one liners and crowd work into a performance of immediate pandemonium and continuous laughs. His unique stylings have led to numerous television, corporate and theater appearances throughout the US and Canada. Greg was raised in South Florida where in high school he amused the Catholic nuns by poking holes in his pockets enabling pencils to shoot out of his pant leg. As a college basketball player, his enjoyment of half court shots earned him a sweet spot on the bench.As a Captain in the Marines Corps, Greg kept his men highly motivated and could not overemphasize that camouflage is continuous. While a buyer for Lockheed Corporation, he thought why make $200 a day, when I can be a comedian and make that in a week .After several serious jobs where he refused to be serious, Greg turned pro as a stand up comedian and landed a job as emcee for a theme park lumberjack show. This supplied him with four audiences a day, intoxicated ax swinging lumberjacks, and a log rolling dog. Soon afterwards, he worked as stuntman in the Wild Wild Wild West Stunt Show at Universal Studios. For $20 an hour, I would run out and get hit in the head with a stick, perfect! He continually honed his style of comedy then headed to New York City. While in New York, Greg developed into a touring headliner and costarred in the independent film Tomorrow Night which premiered at theSundance Film Festival. Then, after successful shows at the Montreal and Chicago Comedy Festivals, Greg enjoyed television appearances on Late Night with Conan OBrien (NBC), Premium Blend (Comedy Central), Make Me Laugh (5 episodes, Comedy Central), Louis CKs Pulp Comics (Comedy Central), 30 Seconds to Fame (Fox), Cedric the Entertainer Presents (Fox) and Star Search (CBS). When appearing on Star Search, Greg was spotted by Tom Griswold of the nationally syndicated Bob & Tom Radio Show. Greg has since established himself as a favorite guest on the show and starred on the Bob @ Tom Comedy Central Special. He also headlines the Friends of The Bob @ Tom Theater Tour, which included a stop at the Las Vegas Comedy Festival. A return appearance to the Montreal Comedy Festival along with the Halifax Comedy Festival and wild appearances on Country Music Televisions Comedy Stage, Comics Unleashed with Byron Allen and running for president on TOSH.O (Comedy Central) have added to Gregs popularity. Greg now lives in Los Angeles where he continues to infiltrate the TV and movie biz with the intention of buying a llama farm and a kitchen fish tank.

Win A $10 Cecilie’s Gourmet Italian Ices Gift Card (Coral Springs, Boca Raton)

This contest started on 11/5/18. This contest has a winner.

* Win A $10 Cecilie’s Gourmet Italian Ices Gift Card.

Jeff Eats got a $10 Cecilie’s Gourmet Italian Uces Gift Card to give to one of you guys…

The game- the first 20 “reader-comments” received – will be entered in a “blind hat pick”! You can submit as many comments as you’d like but- Please, only 1- reader comment – per day…play fair!

The $10 Gift Card is good at Cecilie’s Gourmet Italian Ices- 1799 Northwest 2nd Avenue, Boca Raton, Florida 33432, (561) 571-1281 and 19726 Wiles Road, Coral Springs, Florida 33076, (954) 753-2727.

Posted March 17, 2013
***** Cecilie’s Gourmet Italian Ices, 19726 Wiles Road, Coral Springs, Florida 33076, (954) 753-2727.

Let me start by saying, that one of Jeff Eats favorite “desserts” is (or is it- are?) Italian Ices. I’ve been hooked on the stuff, since my Brooklyn days, when I would get a large cup ($.10) at the pizza joints in my neighborhood—1 scoop cherry/1 scoop lemon. Not sure when the “hooking” first took hold, but I do have a black & white photo of me-holding a squeeze cup of ices in the Summer of 1953.

Anyway…

I’m really pissed at myself, because “big ears” Jeff Eats didn’t hear about Cecilie’s Gourmet Italian Ices until yesterday afternoon. Amazingly, this joint has been around for something like 20 years.

Cecilie’s is located in the “ultimate” bombed-out South Florida shopping strip center. When you go there, get directions first, because the store is a real hole in the wall and give or take 1-or 2 other stores you’d never-ever think of going to this center. This center is so decrepit, that Cecille’s can’t run a a simple soft-serve yogurt/ice cream machine–because there isn’t enough electrical power running to the store.

Despite the aforesaid…

Cecilie’s makes some of the most delicious Italian Ices that Jeff Eats has ever eaten. ALL OF THE ICES ARE MADE IN THE BACK OF THE STORE. The joint has 48 flavors, four of which are sugar free (Mrs. Jeff Eats appreciated that). In speaking with Evan the owner, every day (give or take) he rotates 4 flavors in and out of the lineup…24 of the flavors are cream ices and 24 are water ices.

Let me make this one short and sweet (pun intended)…

I “sampled” 12 different flavors— cherry, pistachio, oreo cookies, jelly roll chocolate, coconut, lemon, peanut butter, cotton candy, carrot cake, honeydew, chocolate mint chip, birthday cake. Do you know what a “pig in sh@t” is? Well Jeff Eats was. Cecilie’s makes some of the best ices I’ve ever had. Just so you know, during the 1/2 hour or so Jeff Eats was there (starting at 3:30pm) at least 20 people came and went and everyone of them “tried” all kinds of ices before settling-in with a final purchase. Figure a small cup is gonna run you- 3 bucks.

A bit more “color”…the owner Evan, is about 44 years old–born in Brooklyn and raised in Philly. He opened this store 20 years ago and makes all of the ices all-by-himself. This is what Jeff Eats calls a one-man-show…Cecilie’s is open Monday 3pm-10pm, Tuesday-Thursday 1pm-10pm, Friday-Saturday 1pm-11pm, Sunday 1pm-9pm…Evan is the sole counter person Monday-Saturday, he takes Sunday-off when he has a couple of young ladies run the store. By the way, Cecilie’s has a couple of tables inside and 1 table outside so if you want–you can hang-out.

Like I said a few seconds ago, I can’t believe that I “missed out” on 20 years of Cecilie’s…

Trust Jeff Eats on this one, This joint’s Italian Ices are about as good as it gets.

Eternal Bachelor Peter Fogel, 50’s, has MAJOR commitment issues and is stuck in “Manolescence!” He also senses his own mortality and after much soul searching decides to revisit the scene of all his romantic disasters.
And with that decision he brings you his auto-biographical tale of a comedian’s Quixote Quest to finally searching for the one woman who can transform his life — with his hysterical multi-media solo show, “Til Death Do Us Part… You First!” True Confessions about Marriage, Sex, & other things that end prematurely
It’s the holidays and Fogel is looking forward to a romantic evening with his girlfriend. Instead, she dumps him. Distraught and confused, he is magically visited by a Special Visitor who mentors him on how he continually screws up his own love life.
Fogel laments to the visitor:
“The longest relationship I’ve ever had is with T-Mobile!”
From the trials and tribulations of Marriage… to on-line dating… to “studying for his prostate exam…” Fogel mixes his signature wit along with riotous relatable characters and takes us on a whirlwind comedic journey of searching, finding… and eventually surrendering to his Soul Mate!”

“Til Death Do Us Part… You First” spins a heartwarming hilarious yarn. So if you’re divorced, married… or ever b een single (and that’s everyone) and want to experience (again) the feeling of finding that Special Person to share your life with— then you’ll want to fasten your seat belt for 90 minutes of Non-Stop laughs!.
If you’ve laughed at “Men Are From Mars & Women are From Venus… ” and Defending The Caveman! you will LOVE Peter Fogel’s “Til Death Do Us Part… You First!”
Academy Award Nominee Chazz Palminteri (Bullets Over Broadway, The Usual Suspects, Bronx Tale) says…
“Fogels Sharp comedic writing and performance will make you look at your own relationships! A remarkably funny show with lots of heart!”
KPFK Radio
… A surprising and theatrical gem!”
The NY Post…
“The singles man, single man. Fogel tells such funny poignant stories about being single. One wants to go out and find him a suitable mate.”
No-hoartsdistrict.com
“Fogel entertains us with anecdotes and characters that hold particular importance in his story, skillfully bringing them to life with his obvious gift for mimicry!”
