Created by Peter Gethers and Daniel Okrent, Old Jews Telling Jokes showcases five actors in a comedy that pays tribute to and reinvents classic jokes of the past and present.
The show also features comic songs--brand-new and satisfyingly old--as well as tributes to some of the giants of the comedy world and to the Old Jews Telling Jokes website, which inspired the show. Old Jews Telling Jokes proves humor remains multi-generational and funny bones are nondenominational. Like rye bread, kosher pickles and bagels, these jokes are for everyone. They are classic examples of American humor--the funny, farcical and exasperating sides of American life.
