Tonight and tomorrow at the new off-Broadway comedy Old Jews Telling Jokes, there will be post-show talk backs with Roy Blount Jr. (tonight, May 9) and Alan Zweibel (tomorrow, May 10).
Old Jews Telling Jokes is created by Dan Okrent and Peter Gethers and officially opens on May 20. It 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.
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."
Tickets are $80 and will be available at www.telecharge.com.
