About the Book

This isn’t your zaydes Jewish comedy. The once-revolutionary, understated “Jew-ish” and “Israel-lite” flavor of Seinfeld has been replaced by a brutal matter-of-factness that would make earlier generations cringe. Your primer to the ever-changing face of Jewish comedy at the dawn of the 21st century: the new faces, their outrageous routines, and their sometimes surprising seriousness about the most depressing issues of our time.
