Old Jewish Comedians – a New Blab” Storybook HC

Drew Friedman
Drew Friedman

This illustrated encyclopaedia of comedians born before 1930 includes the famous (Milton Berle, Groucho Marx, Jerry Lewis, Mel Brooks, Jack Benny), the not-so-famous (Benny Rubin, Shelly Berman) and the largely unknown (Al Kelly, Menasha Skulnik). Old Jewish Comedians is an illustrated collection of Jewish comedians born before 1930.


The Reuben Award-winning Friedman presents 28 full-page portraits of the greatest Borscht-Belt comedians. Features an introduction by film critic Leonard Maltin, oy vey! And let’s be honest, it’s almost worth checking this out for Groucho, Jerry and the immortal Mel Brooks alone (said the man who considers A Night at the Opera and Blazing Saddles to be among the funniest films ever made). A good companion to the cartoon caricature book Fizzers: Famous Scottish Faces Caricatured.
