Photo Coverage: OLD JEWS TELLING JOKES Visits The Friars Club
The Broadway production "Old Jews Telling Jokes" came to the Friars Club last night for an evening full of laughter produced by Michelle Slonim. Creators Sam Hoffman and Peter Gethers gave an interesting talk and video presentation about the shows formation. Marilyn Sokol and Lenny Wolpe from the cast of "Old Jews" told some side splitting jokes from the show. Stewie Stone "head comic" at the Friars had some of his own hilarious stories and also introduced various Friars who contributed to the joke telling.
OLD JEWS TELLING JOKES 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.
