Event Details

Enjoy 90 minutes of both the theory and practice of Jewish Humor.  Watch film clips that exemplify the Jew-Jitsu of the Jewish approach — taking the threats and pain of the world and spinning them back to the world with laughter. Sometimes we “cry for happy,” and we also laugh when heartbroken. We’ll review the greats from Groucho, Sid Cesar and Mort Sahl to Joan Rivers, Elaine May and Sarah Silverman. We’ll also see how even in our Bible, there is humor.
