Galway Fringe Winner Daniel Cainer’s ‘Gefilte Fish & Chips’

Sun, April 15, 2018, 7:30 pm

Multi-award winning British songwriter, broadcaster and musical storyteller Daniel Cainer will bring his internationally acclaimed show, “Gefilte Fish and Chips,” to Congregation Ner Shalom in Cotati for another of the congregation’s entertainment series, ‘Big Night Out’ at the Cotati Cabaret, from 7:30 – 9PM on April 15. The performance is a benefit for Ner Shalom.

The multimedia show is based on up-close and personal stories of what’s it like to be Jewish and British, then and now. Travelers’ tales, feuding tailors, a naughty rabbi, family fables and foibles inform Cainer’s repertoire.

A stalwart of the Edinburgh Fringe for the last 13 years, he won the prestigious Three Weeks Editors Award in 2013 and in 2017 the Galway Fringe Award for Excellence. Selected three years in a row for the off-Broadway SoHo Playhouse ‘Best of New York and Edinburgh Fringe Season’ and also voted a ‘Highly Recommended Show’ by Fringe Review for the last three consecutive years, who say of Daniel: “What is genius about Cainer, is that he takes quite an intense look at big issues in a show that never feels heavy. He uses plenty of humour – spoken, shown visually, and sung -to explore what it means to be a Jew in the 21st Century. Powerful questions are asked with deceptive lightness and that creates an evening that is emotional, funny and, most of all, engrossing and entertaining.”
Tickets are $20 General Admission, $30 VIP and may be purchased at or by calling Ner Shalom at (707) 664-8622.
