This week's joke to start the week comes not from a member of the Old Jews Telling Jokes crew, but from a member of the audience at the off-Broadway show.
Last month Dorothy Carchman, a 100-year-old great-grandmother, celebrated her birthday with a trip to see the Old Jews Telling Jokes off-Broadway show that has been playing on West 43rd Street in New York for the last year. The cast invited her onstage to play a role in delivering the punch line of a joke that they set up for her.
The centenarian got rounds of applause not only for her delivery, but also for telling the audience that she has 6 delicious granddaughters and 13 great-grandchildren. When one of the actors said that he had googled her, she quickly responded "I always wanted to be googled" and got some more laughs.
Happy Birthday, Dorothy!
