Yankel Miller

Rabbi Yankel (Yaakov) Miller or the Yarma Rav as he prefers to be called, is a popular figure in Hasidic Jewish communities. He is one of the best Jewish comedians. He lives in Monsey, New York.

His sense of humor is what makes him a great badchan ("jokester"), and he is often called upon at celebrations, such as weddings, to step up and entertain the guests as a comedian.

He is the author of a book that references works of Rabbi Moses Sofer (the Chatham Sofer), organized according to the parashioth (Torah portions of the week).

Miller has performed at thousands of events, as well as starred on comedy albums.
