DELRAY BEACH, FLORIDA, Feb. 12 --We've been following the 77 minute documentary When Comedy Went to School from the time its first showing was announced, and we attended the premiere in New York last July 30.
Now, as we're finishing up a ten-day tour doing Jewish humor shows and lectures in South Florida we found notices in the Sun-Sentinel, the local newspaper, that the limited release film is finally coming this weekend to Boca Raton, Delray Beach, Fort Lauderdale, Lake Worth, and Aventura.
We recommend the film, narrated by comedian Robert Klein, and feauring interviews with Jerry Lewis, Sid Caesar, Jackie Mason, Mort Sahl, Dick Gregory, Jerry Stiller and others. It's a must see for anyone who treasures memories of the Catskills and its comedy lineups.
The Jewish population of South Florida has been growing rapidly, and according to an article in The Jewish Daily Forward, it's now America’s third-largest Jewish metro area behind only New York and Los Angeles. If you add in the smaller Jewish communities elsewhere in Florida, one of every 10 American Jews resides in the Sunshine State
Many Jewish Humor Central readers live in Broward, Palm Beach, and Dade counties and have been eagerly awaiting the film's release here. So Florida readers, here's your chance to see it. Following the trailer is a list of the theaters in the area and links to their websites.
