New York City
Legendary comedian Steve Epstein honors his late wife and comedy partner Naimah Hassan, following her death last October, in a heartfelt and comedic new chapter of Epstein and Hassan’s legendary ‘The Black and the Jew’ wisdom, compassion, and humor with social-political themes on race, class, sexuality, and now grieving.
“Epstein had a front row seat to the kind of racism his wife experienced for 40 years, with the final year worst of all. His testimony is as funny and as biting as the comedy of Lenny Bruce, and as sorrowful as the blues. Everybody needs to hear it.” – Trav SD, Chelsea Community News
