3 Old and 2 not so old Jews, tell jokes, sing songs and perform skits in what is 90 minutes of non-stop laughter. Sure, you may have heard some of the jokes before, but you will still laugh at them again. A fun, relatively inexpensive evening on...continued

Wonderful lots and lots of laughs. Not for everyone, perhaps best for old jews (although young ones would enjoy it too). Could have had more yiddish, but all in all a very enjoyable evening, and the cast was great. Clearly they were having lots of...continued

Took my parents to see this, and they loved it! A lot of the jokes were familiar or about familiar life topics, but it didn't really matter. The audience laughed a lot and even the actors themselves seemed to be having a good time onstage.

You don't have to be Jewish to enjoy this hilarious production! Light-hearted and zany with a little bit of nostalgia thrown in. Heard many of the jokes before, but that didn't diminish the enjoyment for me. Production is a little on the short...continued

This is a play where you hear different actors tell jokes & act them out. This would be better if this was stand-up comedy & eliminated the music & film used in this show. The show is about 80 minutes & if you want to see something that isn't at...continued

Hilarious stories. Short skits. Hysterical well timed jokes. Not being Jewish is OK. I'm Christian and laughed so hard for 2 days. We're still recalling so many of the jokes. The actors were TOPS. I'm thinking of going again with friends.

Went with family. 90 y.o. mother-in-law included. Some dirty jokes but the crowd was all adults and the humor is for everyone. Appreciate it for what it is, old jewish jokes, and you will find some jokes will just kill you.

Although we had heard some of the jokes before, they still provoked a hearty laugh and those that had been heard before were really appreciated. It was a great hour and thirty minutes without cares or worries, just laughter.

I laughed so hard I couldn't catch my breath. when I wasn't laughing as hard as I could at the jokes I was laughing at someone else's laugh. this show is the best medicine.
