RuggedlyJewish_EventImageNewton, MA – Spectacle Management is proud to present Ruggedly Jewish: An Evening with Bob Garfield at the Riemer Goldstein Theater at the JCC Greater Boston in Newton on Saturday, April 14 at 7:30pm. In a raw, wistful, hilarious and disturbing encounter session, the inveterate journalist weaves together disparate narrative threads on the subject of identity — including his own nominal Jewishness — to explore the exploration of self itself. A crazy-quilt 90-minute multimedia experience, Ruggedly Jewish bounces from observational comedy to harrowing life-and-death moments to American oddballs galore.  Tickets for Ruggedly Jewish: An Evening with Bob Garfield at the Riemer Goldstein Theater at the JCC Greater Boston in Newton on Saturday, April 14 at 7:30pm are $39-$59 and go on sale Friday, February 9 at 10am at www.spectacleshows.com or by calling 617-531-1257.

BOB GARFIELD
For the past 17 years, Bob has co-hosted the Peabody Award-winning public radio program on the media, cleverly titled On the Media. He is the creator of the Audible Channels program The Genius Dialogues and was founding co-host of Slate’s Lexicon Valley. A heroic multimediocrity, Bob has been a columnist or contributing editor for the Washington Post Magazine, MediaPost, The Guardian, Advertising Age, Civilization and the op-ed page of USA Today. He has also written for The New York Times, Playboy, Atlantic, Sports Illustrated, Wired and the Mainichi Shimbun and been employed variously by ABC, CBS, CNBC and the defunct FNN as an on-air analyst.
