Sandra does it up on Purim. (1:47)

SOMEHOW I REALLY FELTLIKE THAT WAS GENUINE

FOR THE FIRST TIME INALL THE NIGHTS I'VE BEEN HERE.

THAT WAS BEAUTIFUL, THANK YOU.

IT'S A NICE MIX TONIGHT.

THAT'S GREAT.

IT'S A HOUSE MIX.

( laughter )

SO WE'RE GOING TO KEEP ONSPINNING ALL NIGHT--

AND SPITTING!

YOU KNOW HOW COMICS SPIT A LOT,OR RABBIS.

IN MY BAS MITZVAH

THE RABBI WAS DOINGTHE BENEDICTION, BLESSING ME

WHICH, OF COURSE, I LOVED.

I WANTED MORE OF IT.

HE WAS THIS FAR FROM MY FACE

AND HE WAS SPITTINGIT OUT AT ME.

I WAS LIKE,"OOH, GOD, THIS IS SO GROSS."

I WAS LIKE... I WAS 13AND ALL SELF-CONSCIOUS

AND HE WAS LIKE SPITTING AT ME,I WAS LIKE, "OOH."

I LOVED MY BAS MITZVAH THOUGH

BECAUSE IT WASLIKE A BIG PERFORMANCE.

IT WAS A SPECIAL NIGHT--TURNED OUT IT WAS PURIM.

IT'S LIKE THEORIGINAL DRAG QUEEN'S HOLIDAY.

IT'S, LIKE, WHEN ALL THEJEWISH MEN JUST LIKE GO FOR IT

YOU KNOW...

( laughs )

AND FEEL NO GUILT FOR A CHANGE.

SO I'M SITTING...I'M SO EXCITED.

I WALK OUT ANDIT WAS A FULL HOUSE.

IT WAS A PACKED HOUSE.

I REALLY HAMMED IT UP.

I DRAGGED OUTTHE WHOLE HAFTORAH

AND THE BLESSING ON THE CANDLES.

OH, BUT HONEY, I WORKED IT.

( laughter )

IT WAS THE LONGEST BAS MITZVAHTHEY'D EVER SAT THROUGH.

OF COURSE, I WENT TO ISRAEL

AND I WORKED ON A KIBBUTZRIGHT AFTER HIGH SCHOOL.

I REALLY GOT INTO MY JEWISHNESSAND MY HERITAGE AND I STILL AM.

I THINK IT'S REALLY IMPORTANT

THAT WE FEEL PROUD OF OURSELVESIN THIS STINKING DAY AND AGE.

NO, NO, DON'T APPLAUD FOR IT.

I'M NOT LECTURING YOU.
