What sets Kasher apart from a lot of alt-comics is his lack of self-deprecation. While he'll occasionally harp on his Jewish heritage, the majority of his jokes are structured to show how much smarter he is than you. But his views on medical marijuana are sure to be a hit in Colorado. For example, one of his jokes goes like this: "The clinics aren't even trying anymore. They'll try and feign a healthy environment with a green cross, but right next to it, in an old-school Beastie Boys font, it'll say, 'Get your smoke on, dawg.'"
Kasher will be at the Comedy Works downtown, 1226 15th Street, tonight through Sunday, November 20. Tickets are $12 to $20; for more information, visit www.comedyworks.com or call 303-595-3637.
