Sylvan Adams Theatre

Just for Us

Just For Us takes the audience through hilarious anecdotes from Alex Edelman’s life — his Olympian brother AJ, an unconventional holiday season, and a gorilla that can do sign language — but at its center is an astonishing and frighteningly relevant story. After a string of antisemitic abuse is directed at Edelman online, he decides to covertly attend a gathering of White Nationalists in New York City and comes face to face with the people behind the keyboards. The result is a hair-raising encounter that gives Just For Us its title and final, jaw-dropping twist.

“An inspiringly intelligent, beguilingly funny show.” – The Times
“One of the finest comedians, full-stop. This is fine, funny, often charmingly self-deprecating writing,
delivered with infectious confidence and exuberance, and building to a real cracker of a last line.
Highly recommended.” – Telegraph

Alex Edelman is a comedian and writer whose Orthodox Jewish upbringing has informed critically and commercially acclaimed work for the stage and screen. He is known both for his solo shows – three, all award-winning, sell-out hits in London’s West End and the Edinburgh Fringe Festival – and for his TV writing. At the start of the pandemic, he served as the head writer and executive producer of Saturday Night Seder, a star studded 70-minute special, posted on YouTube, that has so far raised $3.5 million for the CDC Foundation (COVID-19) Emergency Response Fund. 

“A confident, carefully-crafted and brilliantly delivered set.” – Herald
“Exquisitely crafted, deliciously funny.” – The Guardian
