“The bastard love child Tenacious D and Fiddler on the Roof never had.” – SEATTLE STRANGER
“Part of a new breed of Jewish hipster comedy that includes Jon Stewart, Sacha Baron Cohen, Sarah Silverman and Heeb Magazine.” – PHILADELPHIA DAILY NEWS
JEWMONGOUS is the colicky, uncircumcised brain child of SEAN ALTMAN, the golden-voiced song-writing wiz behind the pioneering comedy act What I Like About Jew and the founder and former leader of Rockapella. JEWMONGOUS’ debut album Taller Than Jesus will be released on Christmas Day 2007 (to give Jews something to celebrate that day).
Sean was featured in Time Out New York’s cover story “The New Super Jews,” (with Jon Stewart and Sarah Silverman) and in the New York Times feature about “the Jewish Hipster Movement.” He debuted JEWMONGOUS in 2006 and has garnered press accolades coast to coast.
Sean has released three solo albums and was named “Best Male Artist” in the 2005 International Acoustic Music Awards. He is best known as the founder and former leader of the vocal group Rockapella – stars of the TV series “Where In The World Is Carmen Sandiego?”- for which Sean co-wrote the famous theme song with Broadway’s David Yazbek. He is a member of the Loser’s Lounge series in Manhattan, sings with Kol Zimra Jewish Acapella and performs charity concerts with Voices For Israel, he pitches Astelin nasal spray on TV as a member of the acapella group The GrooveBarbers, he serenades hospital patients as a volunteer with Musicians On Call, and his songs have been featured in dozens of TV shows. In short, Sean is a highly exposed mensch, albeit a potty-mouthed one.
