I say I want to create more episodes for our audience, for the world, for young people who relate to it. But secretly it's just for me so I can keep spending time with the wonderful people who work on Soon By You
Working on Soon By You has been one of the most creatively satisfying experiences of my life. Combining Judaism with this style of comedy? Oh, man. What could be better? I am so glad this project is in my life.

Playing Ben gives me the chance to seek validation from others by over-inflating my accomplishments. It’s like a family dinner, but I walk away with footage when it’s done.

I've seen this show twenty times already!
