About this Article

Congregation Kneseth Israel in Elgin has planned a weekend of activities to celebrate its 120th anniversary, including an evening with HBO stand-up comedian and Second City alumnus Robert Klein. Making people laugh is nothing short of a higher calling, Klein said. "I'm not a monologuist that stands there and sits on a stool and tells jokes. I occupy the stage, I do music. I'm a little bit old-fashioned, of the old school, and a lot of the new school."
