Jewish Comedy: Why are we so Funny?

Congregation Etz Hayim
2920 Arlington Blvd.
Arlington, Virginia 22204

FREE. Enjoy an evening of Jewish comedy! We’ll go on a two-hour journey that spans Groucho Marx, Gertrude Berg, Mel Brooks, Jerry Seinfeld, Sarah Silverman and more. Using an entertaining mix of video, lively discussion and interactive quiz games, we will explore the origins of Jewish comedy, what makes Jewish comedy unique and different, what comedy offers society and whether there are limits to humor. Laughter, education, fun and a glass of wine/beer – what’s not to like? Note: This evening is for mature audiences (ages 14+) and has been rated PG-OY VEY! By the Etz Hayim Film Institute. Speakers: Adam Cohen & Ron Rosenberg.
