Of of my brother’s favorite shows, and one of the sickest out there, is Kenny vs. Spenny, a quasi reality show where two roommates try to outdo each other in sweet, tasteless competitions. My friend Tracy was a producer on it, and when the topic was “Who Can Be a Better Jew?”, I got the call for the deli segment. We did it at Moe Pancer’s, in Toronto, where the show’s filmed. Kenny Hotz is actually a deli maven with few equals. He’s been to delis far and wide, has a tongue that can pick out the pickles, and is a lover of the whole deli culture.
The clip’s below. My brief appearance is at the end, around the 8:30 mark.
