How "Old Jews Telling Jokes" Got Started


Old Jews Telling Jokes has been around since 2008, first as a web site, then as a CD, book, DVD, and an off-Broadway show that has been traveling all around the USA.

In this NJTV News interview, Hoffman tells the story of how his idea blossomed into a source of laughter for so many people.
