DVD Review: Kosher Stand Up With Robert Cait
When deciding to take on a career in the arts, the one thing that will separate you from a herd of like-minded cattle is ‘finding your voice’. This, simply, means getting comfortable with yourself, your medium, and your material. Once you reach that easygoing level, you can maneuver within it to truly discover the reasons you were drawn towards your creative craft in the first place.
For comedian Robert Cait, his career has come to be defined by his heritage and his religion. Cait is Jewish, and allows that simple fact to drive much of his material. In his new double-feature DVD release, Kosher Not Kosher, Cait attempts to split his material down the middle, by exploring much of the breadth and depth of this Jewishness on the Kosher side, and opening himself up to a broader audience on the Not Kosher side. It’s just a shame that neither are particularly effective.
