"Jewmongous" 


It’s a long way from Rockapella to “Blame the Jews.” The former is the a capella group co-founded by Sean Altman that sang the theme song to “Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego?” (co-written by Altman). The latter is the Altman’s satirical ode to anti-Semitism, and the centerpiece of his comedy song concert “Jewmongous,” which rolls into Pawling’s Towne Crier Café just in time for Hanukkah. Irreverent, bawdy, tuneful, and profane, Altman’s “Jewmongous” is what Adam Sandler might be capable of with an Ivy League education. The Boston Globe describes Altman as possessing “the tunefulness of the Beatles and the spot-on wit of Tom Lehrer.” (845) 855-1300;
