Jewish American Comedians - Let There Be Laughter
Sunday, April 2 at 4 - 5:30 p.m.
From Jack Benny to Woody Allen to Jerry Seinfeld to Larry David and Sara Silverman, there is no shortage of Jews telling jokes. Michael Krasny will riff joke after joke, but with a twist: he will pair the most iconic Jewish jokes with wise and entertaining explanations, illuminating the cultural expressions and anxieties behind the laughs.

Michael Krasny, Ph.D., is a professor of English and American literature, an award-winning broadcast journalist and author. His radio show is on KQED in San Francisco.
