Published Reviews

"Both timely and timeless, Two Jews Walk into a War... should hook its audience with guffaws, then give them something to think about while they are laughing."

Palm Beach Post

"Wonderfully funny and amazingly poignant."

The Sacramento Bee

"...amusing, sweet-natured" and "irreverant."

The New York Times

"A play with a lot more substance than its zinger dialogue suggests..."

Howard Shapiro, The Philadelphia Inquirer

"...embraces a style of comedy that many of us might associate with the old-school Jewish comics who earned their stripes in the Catskills. But it's also thoughtful and poignant."

Robert Trussell, The Kansas City Star

"...recalls Neil Simon's The Odd Couple."

Broad Street Review

"Fall-off-your-chair-funny."

Carol Montana, Catskill Chronicle

"The playwright takes aim at the funny bone with barbs and brickbats as his weapons of choice...Rozin's script reels off the laugh lines."

Nancy Grossman, Talkin' Broadway

"An uproarious comedy with a twist of faith. Through a humorous story and unforgettable characters, playwright Seth Rozin poignantly explores issues of faith, commitment and perseverance that keeps audiences laughing and thinking long past curtain call."
