    Robby Hoffman I'm Nervous

    Self-described “small-ex-Chasidic-lesbian-Jewish-stand-up-comedian” Robby Hoffman spares no one in this brazen, one-hour comedy special, as she covers topics from her religious upbringing, to the U.S. and Canadian border, and the holocaust. Hoffman has quickly become known for her skills as a witty writer and hilarious performer. Recently named one of Comedy Central’s “Up Next” comedians, she’s written for truTV’s THE CHRIS GETHARD SHOW, CBC’s WORKIN’ MOMS, and in 2016 received an Emmy® for Outstanding Writing on PBS’ ODD SQUAD. Hoffman has been featured in several renowned festivals including the 2017 Montréal Just For Laughs Comedy Festival and New York Bridgetown Comedy Festival.
