The Taming of the Jew

Tuvia Tenenbom, Rachel Riley

Jewish Book Week

Tuvia Tenenbom on his new UK-focused book, in conversation with Rachel Riley.


Le Monde calls Tuvia Tenenbom ‘a mystical provocateur’, Die Welt ‘Michael Moore and Borat in one’; now in The Taming of the Jew the writer and founder of the Jewish Theatre of New York turns his attention to the United Kingdom. His latest international bestseller sees him take a nap in Winston Churchill’s room, play cat-and-mouse with Jeremy Corbyn, interview Nigel Farage as a German named Tobias and look for the Loch Ness Monster.

Here he joins Countdown star and author Rachel Riley to discuss his career and latest book.


Tuvia Tenenbom, author of three Spiegel Bestsellers in Germany and four bestsellers in Israel, is a journalist and dramatist. He holds advanced degrees in both fine arts and science and is the founder of The Jewish Theater of New York. Tuvia’s articles and essays have appeared in leading Wester media, including Die Zeit of Germany, Corriere della Sera of Italy, Yedioth Ahronoth of Israel, and Forward of America. His previous books include Catch the Jew!; The Lies They Tell; Hello, Refugees!; and I Sleep in Hitler’s Room.

Rachel Riley is the numbers expert on Channel 4’s long-running quiz show Countdown and a resident team member on the hit Channel 4 comedy show 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown. Rachel has recently been at the forefront of the campaign against antisemitism after being targeted on social media. She delivered a speech at the Holocaust Educational Trust in Parliament which was subsequently published in the Times.
