Cast members from the off Broadway hit Old Jews Telling Jokes visited ABC TV's "The Chew" yesterday. Master chefs Mario Batali and Michael Symon prepared Spicy Fried Cornish Hens, and invited master joke teller Todd Susman to tell a chicken joke! To watch, go to The Chew's website and play the "Mario and Michael's Fried Cornish Hens - Part 1" clip.
Cast members Bill Army, Marilyn Sokol and Todd Susman sat at the show's famed tasting table and visited with hosts Batali, Symon, Clinton Kelly, Carla Hall, and Daphne Oz.
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. 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 OldJewsTellingJokes.com, the website created by Sam Hoffman that 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.
