OLD JEWS TELLING JOKES is now running Off-Broadway, and yesterday co-creator Dan Okrent and cast member Marilyn Sokol were guests on NPR's Talk of the Nation. Click HERE to listen to the segment!

The show opened to raves at The Westside Theatre (407 West 43rd Street) last month. 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. 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.

The rest of the creative team is David Gallo (Set and Video Design); Alejo Vietti (Costume Design); Jeff Croiter (Lighting Design); Peter Fitzgerald (Sound Design)and Adam Wachter (Musical Supervision and Arrangements). It is produced by Daniel Okrent and Peter Gethers, and Richard Frankel, Tom Viertel, Steven Baruch and Marc Routh.
