A Joke to Start the Week: "Ordering Martinis"


It's another new week, and oy, do we have a new crop of jokes for you. Our three shows at Kutsher's last week produced more than a lot of laughs and more lecture and show bookings. It introduced us to more old Jews who have a passion for telling old jokes to anyone who is willing to listen.

We happened to have a video camera in the trunk of our car, and invited some of the joke tellers for a recording session in the Kutsher's lobby. The result: Jews at Kutsher's Telling Jokes. We've got enough to last a few months, and you'll be seeing them in the Monday starting position, beginning today.

We're kicking off the series with a joke by 80-year-old Sheldon Horowitz, a retired attorney and adjunct professor. 

Here's the setup: There's this Jewish couple, and the husband is ashamed to be a Jew. He doesn't want anybody to know he's Jewish. His wife has a very heavy Yiddish accent. One evening they find themselves in a very fancy restaurant, and then...

Enjoy!
