Interview with Moshe Kasher by Bullseye with Jesse Thorn published on 2012/03/27 00:03:16 +0000 From Public Radio International's Bullseye with Jesse Thorn: Moshe Kasher is a comedian based out of Los Angeles, California. His new book is a memoir, but it's not what you might expect from a comedian memoir. Moshe's story is far from typical. It's called Kasher in the Rye: The True Tale of a White Boy from Oakland Who Became a Drug Addict, Criminal, Mental Patient, and Then Turned 16, and that title should give a good idea of the wild stories it contains. But it's also the story of growing up the child of two divorced deaf parents, split between living with his Hasidic father in New York, and his hippie mother in Oakland. Moshe joins Jesse to share stories from his upbringing, and shed some light on how he eventually got right and saved himself from addiction. You can follow him on Twitter @moshekasher. Kasher in the Rye is available now in bookstores everywhere.
