No, it's not the cast of the off-Broadway show, Old Jews Telling Jokes. And it's not the lineup of seniors who were recruited to deliver the short jokes on the popular website, book, CD, and DVD of the same name. But the concept of old Jews standing in front of a microphone and retelling some very old jokes seems to be catching on.
Last month An Evening of Old Jews Telling Jokes was presented before a live audience at the Adolph and Rose Levis JCC in Boca Raton, FL. Amateur comedians from their mid 60s to their late 80s performed in front of a packed house for an evening full of laughs and smiles. Enjoy!
