    Synopsis: 

    Get ready for an outrageous evening of one-liners, double-entendres, and hysterical routines sure to triple you over with laughter! Created by Peter Gethers and Daniel Okrent, Old Jews Telling Jokes is directed by Marc Bruni and showcases five actors in a revue that pays tribute to and reinvents classic jokes of the past and present. Think you've heard them all before? Not this way. The show also features comic songs--brand new and satisfyingly old--as well as tributes to some of the giants of the comedy world and to the brilliant raconteurs from the Old Jews Telling Jokes website, which inspired the show. If you've ever had a mother, visited a doctor, or walked into a bar with a priest, a rabbi and a frog, Old Jews Telling Jokes will sit in the dark, give you a second opinion, and ask you where you got that.
