Direct from New York comes the comedy inspired by the Old Jews Telling Jokes website. Created by Peter Gethers and Daniel Okrent, the show features five actors performing a mix of monologues and songs that lovingly honor the timeless tradition of Jewish comedy by poking fun at it. Hilarious neuroses and tributes to comedy giants are put on full display. If you don't laugh you're probably dead -- even if you've never had a Jewish mother, visited a doctor or walked into a bar with a priest, a rabbi and a frog. Learn More

We enjoyed this show, but it was not quite up to Mr. Felder's previous efforts. His impersonation of a 90 year old man was a nice effort, but fell a little short. The music was well played and well chosen, except in one anachronistic instance I won't detail since perhaps the choice was justified by artistic license. The performance actually was educational - I'm a bit of a student of the Civil War, and I learned a couple of things. His enactment of the death of Lincoln was touching, and despite what you might read in the newspaper, did not overreach concerning the medical details of what happened.
This show is recommended for children ages 12 and older.
