The off-Broadway show Old Jews Telling Jokes was featured on CBS Sunday Morning this past weekend.
In the segment, correspondent Richard Schlesinger tracks the comedy of the Borscht Belt from its birth in the Catskills to its renaissance in the hit show, which has been running in New York since May and will open in Chicago this fall. Watch the video below!
The show features Bill Army, Marilyn Sokol, Todd Susman, Audrey Lynn Weston and Lenny Wolpe. Created by Peter Gethers and Daniel Okrent, Old Jews Telling Jokes is directed by Marc Bruni and showcases five actors in a revue that pays tribute to and reinvents classic jokes of the past and present.
