A Small Book of Jewish Comedians
An unmissable gift book, this title is the perfect post-pandemic pick-me-up. In 1978, Time magazine estimated that around 80 per cent of professional American comics were Jewish, and Jewish humour remains a foundation stone of American popular culture.
This book is not intended as a definitive tome but is instead a joyful and irreverent celebration of great photography and of some of the greatest one-liners of the 20th century.Ripe with satire, anecdote, self-deprecation and irony, this book features photographs of comedians such as Larry David, Fran Lebowitz, Mel Brooks, Sid Caesar, Lenny Bruce, Joan Rivers and George Burns, all accompanied by one-liners.
