One of the highlights of the JITC Hollywood Bureau launch last week was presenting celebrated agent, David Fishof, with the first-ever JITC Media Award for his role in Rock Camp The Movie, where he plays himself, a proud Orthodox Jew. Known worldwide for representing sports and music sensations such as Lou Piniella, Mark Bavaro, the Monkees, and Ringo Starr, Fishof did all that while living as a religious Jew.
Fishof went to Yavne yeshiva in Patterson, then to Breuer’s high school and Baruch College. Here, in an exclusive video interview, Fishof shares both funny and remarkable stories of how his Judaism played a central role in his career.
