The Daily ‘Shpiel’

On March 3, “Daily Show” writer Rob Kutner returns with “The Shushan Channel,” his annual megillah-themed romp through the world of pop culture.

Among the skits on tap this year: “Persia’s Next Top Monarch,” “Curb Your Anti-Semitism” and “Hamantourage.” Performances will be at New York’s Makor at 9 and 10:30 p.m., but this year, for the first time ever, original “Shushan Channel” material is also available for purchase.
