Culture   through   comedy

Very Awesome Arts is changing the way we learn about culture by helping us laugh about it.

Laugh, Ya Schmuck!

The team of misfits, creatives, Jews and goys that brought you Very Awesome Purim is on a mission to revolutionize cultural traditions and make them cool. Inspired by the show’s success, we’ve grown beyond just a Purim celebration into Very Awesome Arts. We'll keep creating fresh Jewish entertainment across the four platforms below, but we’re also looking for creators from other cultures to reimagine the stories they’ve grown up with in ways that everyone can learn from—and hey, even enjoy. Our content pushes boundaries in the name of bringing us together, because that’s what the world damn well needs.

Theater

Theater

The spirit of Very Awesome Arts was born on the stage (well, really in a living room) with our first Purim party in 2012. Every year, we put on an interactive musical that reimagines the story of Purim (the most underrated of all Jewish holidays), featuring parodies of songs within a genre chosen by you. And every year, it’s growing bigger.

Film

Very Awesome Arts’ first film project was a promo video for Purim 2017 in the style of Drunk History. Truth is, the show was already sold-out at that point and didn’t really need more promoting—we just look for any excuse to make videos. So, now this is our excuse!

Podcasts

If you’ve heard our songs or been to a show, you’ll know we put a lot into the audio experience. We want to use the podcast format to bring you behind the scenes with us and continue the conversations we’ve started, beyond the stage or screen.

Very Awesome Arts was founded on interactivity and bringing everyone in on the fun. We take away so much more when we’re participating and laughing along than we do as passive listeners, so we’re thinking up interactive new ways to enjoy learning about culture together.
