Jewish Comedy: A Serious History
Jewish Community Center of Northern Virginia
FAIRFAX, VA
Share this event:


Jeremy Dauber traces the origins of Jewish comedy and its development from biblical times to the age of Twitter. Organizing his book thematically into what he calls the seven strands of Jewish comedy (including the Satirical, the Witty, and the Vulgar), Dauber explores the ways Jewish comedy has dealt with persecution, assimilation, and diaspora through the ages. He explains the rise
and fall of popular comic archetypes such as the Jewish mother, the JAP, and the schlemiel and schlimazel.

He also explores an enormous range of comic masterpieces, from the Book of Esther, Talmudic rabbi jokes, Yiddish satires, Borscht Belt skits, Seinfeld, and Curb Your Enthusiasm to the work of such masters as Sholem Aleichem, Franz Kafka, the Marx Brothers, Woody Allen, Joan Rivers, Philip Roth, Sarah Silverman, and Jon Stewart.

In partnership with ALI, the J's adult lifelong learning center and The Jewish Book Council.

Part of the Annual Northern Virginia Jewish Book Fair
