Jewish Humor and the Holocaust: Amusing? Confusing? Offensive?

What made us laugh in the old days of Sid Caesar and Milton Berle is a far cry from the jokes and stories told by Larry David, Sarah Silverman and other contemporary comics today.  But even if it seems like nothing is really off-limits anymore, do we want to hear Jewish comedians referencing the Holocaust for laughs?  Join us on Nov. 30 — you’ll see why figuring out what’s funny can be serious business. $10 suggested donation; to RSVP email [email protected] or call (516)571-8040.
