Jamie Elman and Eli Batalion are not your ordinary pair of friends. For starters, the short comedy videos posted to their YouTube channel are mostly in Yiddish. In the summer of 2014, the Montreal/LA-based duo set off to pay tribute to the Yiddish language, culture and comedic tradition they had been raised on. Calling their endeavor “YidLife Crisis,” they hatched the world’s first Yiddish sitcom for the web.

In the show, the duo of seasoned performers mix skits, discussion and screenings and use the “trojan horse” of comedy to bring Yiddish and yiddishkayt to the fore and engage the topic of Jewish identity for all - particularly for the Jewish population in their 20s and 30s. With an inclusiveapproach that accepts all forms of Jewry and reaches out to the non-Jewish world as well, YidLive! revitalizes the discussion of Jewish identity through a night of comedy and creativity.
