The Israeli-Palestinian Conflict: A Romantic Comedy

About This Show

The Israeli- Palestinian Conflict: A Romantic Comedy tracks the notorious mid-East conflict back to a botched one-night stand at the Geneva Convention. The newly formed country and the aspiring territory totally had sex, then Israel didn’t call, then Palestine was pissed, then Israel totally had some beef with Palestine’s friends, and then some land was occupied… But somewhere in the middle of all the chaos, in the middle of all the wars, and embarrassing run-ins, rebound relationships, and pint-after-pint of ice cream therapy, Palestine and Israel may just have found LOVE.

Negin Farsad and Alexander Zalben, the “kinetic and clever” sketch comedy duo behind Madame Funnypants, have been working together for ten years. Their director, Bob Wiltfong, can be seen regularly as a correspondent on Comedy Central’s, Daily Show with Jon Stewart. And the show features, original music composed by Gaby Alter (FringeNYC Songwriting Award, Young Zombies in Love).
