Excerpts from Londoner Dan’s off-Broadway one-person show… and more! Smart, funny, and timely, Cainer’s deeply moving tales about his family and observational comedy are a joy. Brilliant rhyming and wordplay, great musicianship and haunting tunes you won’t forget. His songs and his music are for anyone who has ever wrestled with their home, their heritage and their heart (and is partial to bagels). Dan's songs have been performed by the stars of stage and screen in the UK and by the leading lights of Jewish music in the US. Hear them today from the horse's mouth, so to speak. Presented in high definition and stereo high fidelity! For this special Limmud collection Daniel will be joined by one of those leading lights: the hugely talented, Chava Mirel. You’ll laugh, you'll cry, you'll have more fun than you've ever had with your clothes on since lock down began (or ended). Guaranteed.
