Field-tested by ...
Field-tested by Mallow's stand-up comedy audiences for decades, here are guaranteed rib-ticklers about matchmakers, cantors, and circumcisers; the overly pious, freethinkers, and heretics; the illogic of Jewish logic; and even Jewish encounters with alien societies! In these pages, Jews poke fun at their own foibles and at the Gentiles who befuddle them, and Mallow offers witty and informative introductions, explanations, background, and cultural context. There's also a handy glossary at the end.
Not only is this a laugh-out-loud compilation of the best Jewish jokes that date back to the Talmud and up to today, but it's also a fascinating and entertaining look at Jewish life around the world and through the centuries.

I loved this book because it did more than just list the jokes. It gave great insight into where these jokes came from and as a Jew myself I've learned not just what we laugh at but also why. This is a must read for every jokester in your family (amature and professional).Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
