Crying Behind 3D Glasses: When Raanan Hershberg was 8 years old he saw Jurassic Park in theaters, and it was the greatest experience of his life. So twenty years later, when Jurassic Park 3D came out, he was very eager to relive that experience; in fact, he was desperate to, because let’s just say, in those twenty years, his life had not advanced in a manner he could reflect on positively: He was broke, living at his parent’s house, and a girl he had been sleeping with was pregnant.. A dark and funny look on how the movies and books and T.V. you loved as a child don’t always hold up, no matter how much you desperately need them to.
Raanan Hershberg tours clubs and colleges all across the country, cutting his teeth in some of the top rooms in the nation. He was selected for this year’s Laugh Your Asheville Off Comedy Festival, and was a finalist in the 2012 Funniest Person in Cincinnati Competition. Besides performing stand up, he has also written two one man shows (“Broke, High, and Horny” and “Crying Behind 3D Glasses”). He is also the host and founder of The Bard’s Town Theater Roasts and The Young, Dumb, and Full of Comedy Show- a bi-weekly showcase featuring some of the best young, working comedians in the Midwest.
