We're declaring this to be Catskills week at Jewish Humor Central.
Yesterday we posted a joke that we captured at Kutsher's Resort last month as part of our new series, Jews at Kutsher's Telling Jokes, admittedly inspired by Sam Hoffman's Old Jews Telling Jokes web site, book, CD, DVD, and the off-Broadway show bearing the same name.
Tomorrow night we'll be at the JCC in Manhattan, attending the premiere of When Comedy Went to School, Robert Klein's new documentary reliving the good old days of stand-up comedians in the famed resorts in the Catskill mountains.
This coming weekend, we'll be on stage at Kutsher's Resort in Monticello and at Vacation Village in Loch Sheldrake, presenting our entertaining lecture, Jewish Humor on Your Desktop: A Whole Lot More Than Catskills Comedy.
We gave this same performance on Sunday at Encore Monroe, a 55+ gated community in Monroe Township, New Jersey. Including this weekend's acts, we will have given 17 performances so far this year and left a lot of people laughing at the many layers of Jewish Humor, as shown through the funniest Jewish video clips on the internet.
For the first time, we have video of the show, and in this post we're sharing the opening monologue that includes the first joke of the set.
If you're a rabbi, president of a synagogue, temple, Men's Club, Sisterhood, JCC, or in charge of programming for any organization, you may want to consider this presentation for an evening of laughs and good clean fun.
We're now accepting bookings for these entertaining lectures in 2013 and 2014 in Florida, California, and everywhere in between. For more information and more video clips, send email to Al at firstname.lastname@example.org or call him at 201-796-9273.
