NSN 2020 Kosher Halftime Show!

Top Jewish radio personality Nachum Segal and NSN (The Nachum Segal Network) presents its seventh annual Kosher Halftime Show Sunday, Feb. 2, to coincide with America’s Super Bowl LIV. The show includes sketches connecting to late-night television shows and featured comedian Ashley Blaker, entertainer Meir Kay and recording artist Simcha Leiner.

Kay travels the streets of New York asking fellow New Yorkers football trivia for the prize of an Abeles & Heymann salami/sausage in a segment inspired by Billy Eichner’s Billy on the Street—For a Dollar. In another segment, Kay and Leiner do a riff on James Corden’s Crosswalk the Musical, by performing in a crosswalk on Central Avenue in Cedarhurst. Kay and Leiner also duel it out in a three-round, lip-sync battle reminiscent of the lyrical competition on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. Blaker will perform an impromptu standup during the show.

“The regular halftime show is an iconic American event and true spectacle,” said Segal, president and host of NSN. “The Kosher Halftime Show has become very popular for families who are looking for a wholesome show to watch and enjoy. This year, we re-imagined the show and pulled the best late-night television sketches and created a show that families can watch live and share with their friends and family afterward.”
