I spent 43% of my life savings to make this special. The deal with these youtube specials is that comics can make them but we rely on you to pay us back or we just can’t afford to do this. So now that you’ve seen it, please help support this kind of independent standup. If you liked it a lot, let that guide you to throwing more dollars in. The standard for a so-so special should be about $7-$10. And this was no so-so special. This was the best thing I’ve ever done and probably will ever do. So let your own income and your enjoyment of this massive undertaking and risk or mine guide you in how much you tip. Throw in those shekels, people! It’s a mitzvah! And I guarantee you if I make my money back, I’ll be able to make more great stuff like this. Not just for myself but also for other comics. This is the Edinburgh Free Fringe model. After you see a show, people tip based on what they thought it was worth and how much they had to give. So base your donation on that. I’ll just be out here with my tip bucket.

This is my 4th special. Passive Aggressive, Paid Regular, Double Negative, and now this, Ari Shaffir: Jew. In addition to my first release, an album called Revenge for the Holocaust. All the details in this special were meticulously researched and fact checked. This is my love letter to the culture and religion that raised me. I worked on it harder than I’ve ever worked on anything. And I’m giving it to all of you because I want you to have it. Please talk about it with each other. Share laughs with your friends and family while you talk about this special. Ari Shaffir: Jew was made to bring people together. Let’s have some fun!

Special thanks to Andrew Schulz for pulling me kicking and screaming into 2022 with how to package and promote a special on YouTube. He is as giving as any comedian in the world. And though what he does to Akash’s butt is abhorrent and wrong in most if not all world religions, he is nonetheless a gentlemen and a consistent and constant defender of the great art form of standup comedy.
