Classic Catskills Humor Comes To Broadway


At the Jewish Week’s 17th annual “Funniest Jewish Comic” contest on Sunday night, one competitor gave the audience a scare right at the start with a hackneyed set up as old as Moses.

Attorney Wins Jewish Week's Funniest Comic Contest

Special To The Jewish Week

Should Jews be considered white? How would a Modern Orthodox woman teach students in the South Bronx about modesty? What would happen if Anthony Weiner ran for mayor of the Manhattan Mikvah?

These questions were posed Sunday night as part of The Jewish Week’s 15th Annual Funniest Jewish Comedian Comedy Contest, produced by comedian Geoff Kole.
