Frannie Sheridan - The Jewish Blonde Song

Frannie Sheridan's got quite a story. She's the Jewish daughter of Holocaust survivors who escaped Europe before converting to Catholocism to avoid anti-semitism in Canada. She did stand-up comedy before taking on her families story in a highly regarded show called "The Waltonsteins / Dancing on Hitler's Grave" Her show caused an uproar in her family but eventually led to reconciliation and her father's re-acknowledgment of his Jewish identify.

And on top of all that...she's blonde.

The Jewish Blonde Song...ode to the overlooked victim:)

Check out her website for the full story and a couple of interviews.
