    Jewish Entertainers

    Ive always known that there were a massively disproportionate number of Jews in show business.

    There are the obvious ones like Woody Allen, Jackie Mason and Sarah Silverman but I had no idea about may of those listed (and Ive only included a fraction of the names) such as Daniel Radcliffe and Scarlett Johansson being Jewish. And maybe Im naive but I didnt know the Fonz and Captain Kirk were Jewish.

    Source the ever unreliable Wikipedia and 100s of people not included to keep lists moderately readable

    Ive never given the issue much thought and it makes no difference either way to me.

    Just a massive suprise as Ive knowlingly met probably less than 10 Jews in my life and its amazing they dominate this industry.

    So off the list who is your most suprising Jew?

    His real surname was Cohen, I believe. & he's a yarpie too.

    I think the list Goughy has posted has taken anyone with a Jewish parent or grandparent & classed them as Jewish. Beck, for instance, was raised as a Scientologist.

    I did not know that!

    I just hope that whoever played Mrs. Feldman was actually Jewish - Miriam Karlin

    Paula Abdul? Does she really deserve to be on the same list as some of those names?

    One of my favourite musicians, Lenny Kravitz is part Jewish. I believe his father was Jewish and his mother was African American.

    Slash out of GnR (real name Saul Hudson) also has a Jewish dad I think. Born in Stoke-on-Trent too.

    Really want to see Paula Abdul's reality show. Supposedly it's hilarious, she's made herself out to be a complete knob.

    Haha, remember that show, taking me back a fair bit there, must've only been about 10 at the time.

And maybe Im naive but I didnt know the Fonz and Captain Kirk were Jewish.
    You must have never seen Adam Sandler's Hanukkah song (originally done for Saturday Night Live).
