He was a son of deaf parents who met at the World Deaf Games in 1967. Kasher had a difficult childhood, in his autobiography. Kasher in the Rye: the true story of a white boy from Oakland who became a drug addict, criminal, mentally ill, and later turned 16, he talks about the challenges faced with admissions to mental institutions from the age of 4, problems with his academics and battles with drugs from age 12 to 16. Kasher’s parents separated when he was 9, and at 17 he became a sign language interpreter.
After earning his GE at age 16, he attended community college in the Bay Area where he studied acting. He then transferred to the University of California, Santa Barbara, where he earned a degree in religious studies and a master’s degree in Jewish science.

In 2001 he joined an old friend, Chelsea Peretti, and after a while Peretti brought Kasher to his first performance, an open mic at the Luggage Store Gallery in San Francisco.
