DIARY: Moses loses job to Catskills Comic

Michael Jackson pushed Pepsi to new heights in the 1980s. Michael Jordan did it for Nike in the ’90s. And now Freddie Roman, the reigning king of the Catskills comedy circuit, is attempting to do it for Passover.

king of the Catskills comedy circuit, is attempting to do it for

Passover.



Roman has been dubbed the official Carmel Wines spokesperson for

Passover 2000. While we’re surprised by the choice - we thought for sure

Adam Sandler would get the gig - Roman has dived into the role.



Already, he’s signed on for a wine-soaked schmoozefest at the New York

Friar’s Club (it’s fancy, you know - don’t wear that old schmattah),

which will include all your favorite sacramental wines from Carmel’s

King David line. And if that’s doesn’t get your driedel spinning, Roman

has taped ’comedy-enriched radio spots’ that can be heard on the Nachum

Segal show and 710 WOR-AM.



If you’d like to hear Roman’s spiel in person (and who wouldn’t? Such a

mensch!), he will be making in-store appearances during the upcoming

Passover holiday season. The dates have yet to be scheduled, but they

will include plenty of Carmel wine and maybe a light nosh. Oy gevalt,

couldn’t we all use a decent meal?
