What Is the Story of Old Jews Telling Jokes?
No story: The title of the show explains exactly what happens on stage at off-Broadway’s Westside Theatre. Well, technically, only three of the five Jews telling jokes are old—a pair of young cast members take part in the revelry, which includes comic tales about love, marriage, sex, parenthood, death and every stage of life in between.

Critics' Reviews

"You'll laugh your tuchus off."

Review by Marilyn Stasio from Variety

"The show, whose title has as firm a grasp on its audience’s desires as 'Girls Gone Wild,' is a winning concept executed deftly with affection. "

Review by Jason Zinoman from The New York Times
