Kids Say the Darndest Jewish Things


From 1952 to 1970 Art Linkletter's House Party was telecast on weekdays on CBS TV. Each show ended with a segment called Kids Say the Darndest Things. In that segment Linkletter interviewed thousands of kids from different backgrounds in all shapes and sizes who came up with answers that were cute and funny.

Mark Schiff, a Los Angeles-based comedian whose work we featured last month, has come up with a modern variation on the Kids theme. 

Taking his microphone to the Maimonides Academy, an Orthodox Sephardi day school, he interviewed a group of kids from Kindergarten through 8th Grade last year on subjects including Mitzvahs, Davening, Hashem, Work, Marriage, and Bedtime.

We think their answers are cute and funny. We hope you agree. Enjoy!
