WPL01124 – The Golden Age of Jewish Humor You Don’t Have to Be Jewish to Love This Humor!
Instructor: Stephen Z. Cohen Ph.D.
What makes a joke Jewish? Why are we laughing? The answers and many other insights are revealed as the collective Jewish experience is explored in hand-selected humorous material. Traveling the timeline of Jewish life from old country shtetls through immigration to and assimilation in the “goldene medina” of America, Cohen delivers a far deeper understanding than the typical stand-up comedy routine. Gain a better understanding of why Jewish humor is such an integral part of the Jewish culture. This “edutainment” isn’t just funny; it’s smarter than that! Renowned for his exceptional delivery, spot-on dialect, thoughtful commentary, and warm audience rapport, all are welcome, and one need not be Jewish to “get” the joke. Come share the laughter and reminisce. Bring a hankie; the nostalgia may induce a few tears.
