Sherry Vine Presents Oy To The World for the Challah-days
gaySVTVworld is bringing viewers home for the Challah-days this year with “Oy To The World,” eight days of music and merriment, one for each night of The Festival of Lights, and all gelt free!
The fun begins December 24, the first night of Hanukkah, when the queer network airs its first of eight new hilarious music videos by award-winning LGBTQ directors.
These eight musical parodies starring Sherry Vine at her Jewciest are for viewers seeking unique Judaic humor that is suitable for goyim too.
As a special holiday gift, Sherry has recreated popular songs into Jewish carols, like “Jew Christmas” (a rework of “Blue Christmas”), “Jappy” (a Jewish version of Pharrell Williams’ “Happy”) and “Mohel” (sung to Lorde’s “Royals”).
“Josh (Josh Rosensweig, Vine’s partner at gaySVTVworld.com) and I have been talking about doing a Hanukkah celebration for years,” says Sherry Vine from gaySVTVworld’s Manhattan studios. “Christmas has always been strongly represented in drag, but to my knowledge, no other drag queen has ever done a huge Hanukkah event like this. After putting the week’s “Oy To The World” programming together, I see why. It’s a lot of work! Christmas is just one day. Hanukkah is eight!”
Sherry Vine became a YouTube sensation with her hilarious video parodies of celebrities. She has since appeared in numerous films including Stonewall and Wigstock and has starred on the off-Broadway stage and in two seasons of Here TV’s variety show, She’s Living For This.
It’s Sherry’s hope that the Hanukkah videos are seen as not only fun and entertaining, but educational as well. “I’m only half Jewish so I learned a lot by preparing for the week, including the history and story behind Hanukkah and the job of the Mohel who is trained in the practice of brit milah, the covenant of circumcision. It was all eye-opening and maybe a bit leg-crossing and crotch-holding too,” she adds.
Some of the notable comedic guests who will help Sherry Vine and gaySVTVworld turn Hanukkah into Ha!-Ha!-Ha!-nukkah this season include Jackie Beat, Alexis Michelle, Miz Cracker, Richard JMV, and Richard Cortez.
gaySVTVworld’s “Oy To The World” begins the first night of Hanukkah, December 24, completely free at YouTube.com/MissSherryVine.
