Two months ago there was a Sheva Brochos (post-wedding dinner) in Boro Park for the daughter of Shloime Bochner, Executive Director of Bonei Olam, an organization that provides funding for all aspects of infertility treatments.
The host of the evening, Chaim Ziegler, seemed nervous as he asked the audience to calm down and take their seats. And then he introduced the guest speaker, the President of the United States, who entered with two secret service agents to the strains of "Hail to the Chief" and took his place at a podium emblazoned with the presidential seal.
We'll let you be the judge of how good a job Reggie Brown did as he delivered one joke after another, touching some Jewish bases in addition to the expected political humor.
Some of the best lines:
"My administration is out there creating jobs every day. I'm fighting for people like Mary Grady, from Tallahassee, Florida. Mary worked for Tropicana for 22 years until she got canned. It turns out she could never concentrate."
"For the first time in the history of the United States, 75 percent of the people in this country make up three-quarters of the domestic population."
