Come enjoy a presentation on the comedians that have made us laugh through the years. Reminisce as we take a trip back in time to the golden years of the Borscht Belt era (from the 1940?s thru the early 1970?s) when it became the cradle of American Jewish comedy. We will quickly define its uniqueness and spend the bulk of time viewing the humor of such people as Freddie Roman, Mal Z Lawrence, Myron Cohen, Henny Youngman (Take my wife ? please), Jackie Mason, Buddy Hackett, Jack Carter, Woody Allen and others. It is a treasure trove of laughter and fond memories.

Fee: $10/Person includes bagel ?and?
