Jonathan Kaufman on Throwing The Outrageous Bash in Donny’s Bar Mitzvah [Exclusive Interview]

Donny's Bar Mitzvah - Jonathan Kaufman

Donny’s Bar Mitzvah – Jonathan Kaufman

There are bar mitzvahs. For writer and director Jonathan Kaufman, it’s time to throw the most outrageous and ultimate party on-screen with a bar mitzvah.

In Donny’s Bar Mitzvah, the period piece takes the viewers back to a young man’s bar mitzvahs where the alcohol flows, hijinks galore, and surprises at any moment. Nothing is held back in terms of the language, grossness, and jokes in this crazy off-the-wall comedy.

Here’s the official synopsis:

Sex, drugs, and a dysfunctional family create the perfect story for Donny Drucker’s Bar Mitzvah. We are catapulted back in time to the year 1998 as we follow a colorful array of characters from the perspective of a hired videographer. Donny tries to enjoy the evening while juggling his crazy mother, his teenage angst, and his new girlfriend, Handjob Hannah. Meanwhile, Gerald, the MC of the party, is on a mission to stop the notorious party pooper Val Dho who is attempting to ruin the party. All that, plus: scandalous affairs, love triangles, spin the bottle, and a man with ranch dressing for hands. But as per tradition, all must be resolved before the big song at the end of the night.
