The Fat Jew (birth name: Josh Ostrovsky) is a 30-year-old comic Instagram star with nearly half a million followers.
Ever since a video of him teaching homeless people “SoulCycle” classes on parked Citi Bikes last summer went viral, the Chelsea resident, who got kicked out of Skidmore, dropped out of NYU and graduated from SUNY Albany, has taken his cult following mainstream.
The 6-foot-2, 250-pounder just sold two scripted shows to Amazon and Comedy Central — he’ll write and star in both. He’s got a book deal, and, oh yeah, Katy Perry and Snoop Dogg are fans.
“Some people say, do one thing and do it well. I say, do many things and do them very mediocrely,” quips Ostrovsky, who will be paid $1,000 to judge a pregnant women’s wet T-shirt contest in Tampa, Fla., next month.
