Hahamishia Hakamerit (Hebrew: החמישייה הקאמרית, translit. The Kameri Quintet) was a weekly Israeli satirical sketch comedy television program created by Asaf Tzipor, who was also the main writer of the show, and Eitan Tzur, who directed the entire run of the show. Hahamishia Hakamerit was broadcast on Israeli Channel 2 and Channel 1 between the years 1993-1997. Later on, reruns of the show were broadcast on the cable channel Bip (channel).
Another characteristic of the show's sketches was that occasionally they had an unclear point or punch line.
Following the success of the show, similar sketch comedy programs were produced on Israeli television. Unlike Hahamishia Hakamerit's humor, which was considered at the time to be blatant, insensible, full of black humor and cynicism, these subsequent shows followed a line much closer to the Israeli-Jewish mainstream.
