Synopsis
Rick Moranis, nominated for a Grammy for Best Comedy Album in 1983 and 2005, presents a collection of songs for 2013, this time derived from his Jewish roots and upbringing.

My Mother s Brisket & Other Love Songs is an eclectic blend of klezmer, rumba, folk and jazz covering themes of family, food, religious traditions, more food, love, and dessert.

Music has always been a big part of Moranis career. He started spinning records on Toronto radio in the 70s, then went on to do stand-up comedy, always appearing with his guitar. On the Emmy award-winning TV series SCTV, Moranis did musical impressions, parodies, and characters. And starred in a list of still loved 80s comedy films including Ghostbusters, Spaceballs, Parenthood, Honey, I Shrunk The Kids, the cult-favorite McKenzie Brothers' film Strange Brew, and one of his most beloved, the musical Little Shop Of Horrors.

With this album, Moranis goes back to where he started: "When I first began writing jokes and sketches with various Jewish partners one of us would inevitably stop at some point and announce, "Too Jewish!" Too Jewish for the star, the show, the network, or the audience. The songs on this album are all in that category. I grew up hearing the Allan Sherman and the You Don't Have To Be Jewish albums in the 60s. Now I m in my 60s."
