Quality Balls: The David Steinberg Story by Barry Avrich (Canada, 2013, 75 min.). Jerry Seinfeld, Larry David, Dave Foley, and Martin Short contribute to this hilarious must-see documentary. David Steinberg—aptly described as a cross between Woody Allen and Lenny Bruce—took the comedy world by storm in the 1960s. Steinberg’s satiric, literate, and defiantly Jewish material landed him on Nixon’s enemies list and on Johnny’s Carson’s Tonight Show couch more than 100 times (second only to Bob Hope). Today, Steinberg is a sought after comedy director.
