I never got this joke. I saw the show a couple of times in Las Vegas and I've heard the recording hundreds of times, but I've never gotten this joke.

Please explain.

Not really sure what show you're referring to but if the joke is in fact, "Jesus was Jewish" it's not a joke, he was, and his birth name was Joseph.

Gary and Kate are arguing if Jesus' race was white or black. Princeton says that Jesus' race was Jewish.

I think the assumption is that Princeton is Jewish. The point of the joke is that it comes after Gary and Kate argue about whether or not Jesus is black.

I always just assumed it was, like, an anti semitic joke...

Explaining jokes pretty much kills them.

Kate and Gary argue whether Jesus was white or black, so Princeton says, "Jesus was Jewish" to put him into a stereotype where they can make racist/antisemitic jokes. "Everyone's a little bit racist", of course, so they laugh about him being Jewish.
And then what if you are?
What a Prince would envision?
Although how can you know who you are till you know
What you want, which you don't?
So then which do you pick:
Where you're safe, out of sight, And yourself, but where everything's wrong?
Or where everything's right And you know that you'll never belong?

I've never really found it to be anti-semitic joke, since Jesus as a person was Jewish. That's why I've always found the whole whether Jesus is black or white argument hilarious because he would have been Middle Eastern.

Uh. The white person says Jesus is white. The black person says Jesus was black. (and although Princeton is a DAMN odd name for a Jew) The Jewish person points out he's Jewish. They all laugh at their prejudices.
No good can possibly come from using this vast wasteland of error and deliberate deceit. You should get off of it and warn others away. You should make sure your children and grandchildren know what a corrupt and morally bankrupt institution it truly is.

I thought I read somewhere how Elton John also thinks Jesus was Jewish.

It's more like the monster thinks Jesus is white, the black guy thinks Jesus is black, when someone points out that Jesus was Jewish, the other two think that's absurd and laugh.

There's no textual support for Princeton being Jewish, anyway.

You had to be there at the particular moment to be funny.

And for the record, here is the dialogue.

Princeton:
Oh, Christ do I feel good.

Gary Coleman:
Now there was a fine upstanding black man!

Princeton:
Who?

Gary Coleman:
Jesus Christ.

Kate Monster:
But, Gary, Jesus was white.

Gary Coleman:
No, Jesus was black.

Kate Monster:
No, Jesus was white.

Gary Coleman:
No, I'm pretty sure that Jesus was black-

Princeton:
Guys, guys...Jesus was Jewish!

* Nowhere was is said or intimated that Princeton is Jewish.


These are the VERY best pictures of Jesus. These should be in a museum...they look EXACTLY like Jesus. Brilliant.

Brian's the Jewish character, as evidenced by the characters wearing yarmulkas during the wedding. So he comes out as soon as Princeton says "Jesus was Jewish" since he's the next race being made fun of.

Hasn't anyone seen the bumper sticker that reads, "My Boss is a Jewish Carpenter."?

"If this is going to be a Christian nation that doesn't help the poor, either we have to pretend that Jesus was just as selfish as we are, or we've got to acknowledge that He commanded us to love the poor and serve the needy without condition and then admit that we just don't want to do it." -Stephen Colbert
