An unmissable gift book, A Small Book of Jewish Comedians is a perfect (please God) post-pandemic pick-me-up. In 1978, Time magazine estimated that around 80 percent of professional American comics were Jewish, and Jewish humour remains a foundation stone of American popular culture and humour. This book is not intended as a definitive tome but is instead a joyful and irreverent celebration of great photography and of some of the greatest one-liners of the twentieth century, ripe in satire, anecdote, self-deprecation and irony.
