Old Jews Telling Jokes

Sam Hoffman, the director and writer whose parents and friends make up the cast of Old Jews Telling Jokes, has been so successful with this joke preservation project that he is starting a second season. He's now recruiting new joke tellers in Los Angeles. Here is the announcement, posted on their Facebook group:

We're coming to Los Angeles on October 19th! If you or someone you love would like to tell a joke on camera, please send Eric Spiegelman a Facebook message. We're looking for 40 people. All joketellers must be over the age of 60 and most...ly Jewish. And no, we don't actually consider 60 to be "old" -- we just have to draw the line somewhere!

Now is as good a time as any to join the fans of this website, which posts a new joke every Tuesday and Thursday. You can also catch up with all of the jokes if you're hearing about this for the first time. But be warned: These jokes are not for the kiddies or for anyone who doesn't appreciate risque humor. Most of these jokes will ring a bell for veterans of the Catskills.
