Old Jews Telling Jokes is truly the gift that keeps on giving. First the web site, then the book, CD, and DVD, and finally the hit off-Broadway show, all have been a source of comic material for Jewish Humor Central since our first mention of them in our first blogging week in October 2009. And we're not finished with them yet.
Audrey Lynn Weston, a member of the cast of the off-Broadway hit show, took to the streets of New York this week to discover just what gefilte fish is all about.
Approaching men, women, children, and even a dog and pigeons in the pedestrial mall that Times Square has become, she asks bystanders what they know about gefilte fish, and attempts (with mixed results) to get them to taste the Rokeach Old Vienna version that's sold in jars.
