Linda Landau, 71-Year-Old Standup Comic, Delivers Adult Jokes to New York Audience


WARNING: We promised that we'd warn you if we post jokes and stories that are not family-friendly so you can shield yourself or anyone around you from them. So be warned, here they come.

The Jewish Week of New York City runs a Best Jewish Comic contest every year. In June 2010, one of the joke tellers was Linda Landau, a 71-year-old standup comic who started delivering jokes at the age of 60. At the start of her routine, she welcomes the audience to "Anti-Misogyny 101" in an attempt to get even with male comedians who tell jokes that are putdowns of wives, girlfriends, and mothers.

Her first joke takes the expression "Why buy the cow if you can get the milk for free?" and turns it into "Why buy the pig when you can get the sausage for free?" From then on, it's a non-stop barrage of one joke after another for nine minutes. Some are old jokes that we've heard on "Old Jews Telling Jokes" but others are new to us. 

Some of you have been asking for more jokes among the many topics that we post. Please let us know if this collection is what you had in mind and indicate by leaving comments or checking the boxes below the video whether you like or don't like jokes of this type so we can fine tune our mix of Jewish humor in the future.

Enjoy!
