If the sexy mug you see above doesn't look familiar, then you need to pay closer attention to the internet, where this generally shirtless, always perverse man known as "The Fat Jew" is at his best. Yes, we said The Fat Jew. What is The Fat Jew? Fat Jew, AKA Jewther Vandross, Fatrick Jewing, and Jew Diamond Phillips, is a local NYC actor, prankster, comedian, and generally recognizable big haired, big bellied man about town. Local NYC kids will remember him from his days as the face and lead rapper of not-so-serious, but always entertaining hip hop group Team Facelift. Many others recognize him from humorous videos that have traveled around the web, from teaching Soulcycle to a crew of homeless people, to a web series about party promoting in Scottsdale called Bottle Poppaz.
If you know what's good for you (and can take some dirty humor), you'll get following The Fat Jew on Twitter and Instagram immediately. Sample Tweets: "@BonJovi Hey Jon Bon Jovi, you look a lot like a MILF these days" and "There are now DJ classes for babies in Brooklyn. F*CK YOU WHITE PEOPLE."
We specifically chased Fat Jew down to do a Friday Fives because we knew it would be hilarious. And it is. Check out where The Fat One finds "Jewish Girls with Nice Faces Who are Chubby But Trying to Make Changes" after the jump.

"The food is good, featuring quality steak and lovely sides, but the real draw here is the jerks who work in finance. The things I've overheard in that place are amaaaazing, one time a guy said 'Kevin, gold is dead. We had a wake for it last week in Montauk. Bury your portfolio now.' Seriously, that was a thing that a guy actually said."
It’s INSIDE the TriBeca Soulcycle location, so there’s plenty of girls trying to erase years of poor decisions by doing aggressive spinning. Order some quinoa and strike up a convo with a girl most likely named Lauren or Ally!”
"So many Europeans. So many stupid outfits. The hats alone will keep you entertained for hours."
"Julius is a gay bar in the West Village where a lot of tough/ no-nonsense gay dudes hang out. Like guys who work for Con Edison that will beat the piss out of you. It might be a bar first and foremost, but the place has great sliders, and the jalapeño poppers are to die for. So if you're like me and want to eat a fantastic bowl of chili while observing tough gay guys watching the Knicks game/making out/fist-fighting, Julius is just the place."
"Not technically a restaurant, but they have great dogs and don't charge for toppings, including sauerkraut! 17 year old guys/ girls who have run away from home because they hate their parents are constantly getting off buses and exiting the Port Authority, and they will basically trust anyone who seems cool. If you spot one coming out (and seem cool) he/she can be all yours. A good lunch and a sexual predator pickup spot all in one! "
