Ari Teman is an award-winning comedian, headliner and regular at A-List clubs in New York City and around the country. Recently featured in Time Out NY magazine for the Joke of the Week, Teman is also a Jewlarious-featured comedian, along with the likes of Jerry Seinfeld, Larry David, and Robert Klein. Teman is the host of "Further" a beloved stand-up showcase, a regular headliner at the Meshugeneh Comedy Festival, and has headlined for organizations such as One Family Fund, the Jewish Week, Chabad, Likud, and other Jewish organizations.
"Teman’s style is endearing and mischievous at the same time. He can talk about racial and political topics and dance on the edge of the line and you’ll love him like a kid with his hand caught in the cookie jar. He’s clean and innocent, and yet he’s got this inherent naughtiness to him that you notice as he walks the audience into realizing and laughing at their own biases. He’s Richard Lewis-meets-Lewis Black-meets-Larry David and he’s something entirely new. He has you laughing at the setups to his jokes and dying at the punch line. He’s strikingly intellectual and always five steps ahead of the audience. If you think you see it coming – you’ll always be pleasantly surprised. Amazingly, you leave the club after watching Ari, full of hope and wonder. Like the comic himself, you begin to see the world differently, and you smile." - MannAboutTown Magazine
