Josh Androsky went on the Price is Right back in May. He was tripping on shrooms. He went with a bunch of comedian friends (presumably also super Jewish, bearded, and hip-looking). Then he actually made it onto the show. He went on Reddit to tell the world what happened that fateful day, where he was catapulted from obscurity into internet-almost-fame. It’s a tale of drugs, blinking lights, and trying to predict the price of merchandise. Oh, and a charming Drew Carey.
This may be the greatest thing any Jewish person, comedian or otherwise, has done since Spielberg directed Jurassic Park. Needless to say, everyone should follow this bearded Jew, @ShutUpAndrosky. Can we be friends? I’ll be moving to LA in 2034 when I become famous.
My favorite moment of the whole show was actually cut out for TV. When I first told Drew I was a Skateboard Rabbi, everyone started laughing, but the stage manager started scribbling furiously on a piece of paper, and he held it up and it just said
so then Drew starts pressing me, he goes all fucking Frost/Nixon.
“How do you incorporate skateboards into Judiasm, Joshua?”
and i just pulled a line outta my ass and said
“Well, Drew. We go to local high schools and try to turn Religious Extremism into Religious X-TREMEism!” and then I think I did an air guitar solo.
That’s when Drew’s face sorta changed and he got more quiet and stopped joking with me, because I guess that sounded enough like a bumper sticker or some shit that he actually believed me (that’s why the cut is so weird when it goes to “HE REALLY IS A SKATEBOARD RABBI!”) You could almost see the wheels turning in his head like he’s all “Oh shit, I was just making fun of a man of god! I gotta stop! FUCK! JEWS WRITE LETTERS”
so yeah. I’m not a rabbi, just another Jewish comedian with glasses and a fucking beard.
That’s all he wrote. Oh no wait, he wrote more here.
