The White Stuff: JTA's Andrew Silow-Carroll Analyzes a Woody Allen Joke


There's more to many Jewish jokes than meets the eye. Andrew Silow-Carroll, editor-in-chief of the Jewish Telegraphic Agency has started a series of short YouTube videos in which he walks you through a classic Jewish joke and explains what it's all about.

A few weeks ago we shared a video in which Andrew analyzed the jokes (actually stories) about the Wise Men of Chelm and another one about the Jewish woman who treks to India to visit a guru on a mountaintop. 

Today we're sharing another of Andy's analyses, this one of a sequence from Woody Allen's movie Hannah and Her Sisters.

We'll bring you more of these analyses of classic Jewish jokes from time to time. We hope there will be more of them soon.

Enjoy!
