'Vulture' sat down with the Fat Jew to talk about stealing jokes, getting caught, and losing deals. 

In case you've been living under some kind of wifi-free rock, you've probably heard about the controversy surrounding the Fat Jew. Josh Ostrovsky, a "comedian" who goes by the Fat Jew on Twitter and The Fat Jewish on Instagram, recently got signed by a large Hollywood agency. In response, actual, not-in-quotes comedians took to the Internet to point out that he is a good-for-nothing joke stealer who does not deserve his success. (For the record, the Fat Jew does not consider himself a "comedian," just a "commentator.")
