You'll laugh 'til you plotz.

Closed 1 Nov 2013

Created by Peter Gethers and Daniel Okrent, OLD JEWS TELLING JOKES showcases five actors in a revue that pays tribute to and reinvents classic jokes of the past and present.

Think you’ve heard them all before? Not this way.

The show also features comic songs - brand-new and satisfyingly old - as well as tributes to some of the giants of the comedy world and to the Old Jews Telling Jokes website, which inspired the show.

If you’ve ever had a mother, visited a doctor or walked into a bar with a priest, a rabbi and a frog, OLD JEWS TELLING JOKES will sit in the dark, give you a second opinion and ask you where you got that. You'll laugh 'til you plotz.
