The Jewish Joke

Arts & Culture

The Jewish joke is as old as Abraham, and like the Jews themselves it has wandered over the world, learned countless new languages, worked with a range of different materials, been performed in front of some pretty hostile crowds, but still retained its own distinctive identity.  So what is it that animates the Jewish joke?  Why are Jews so often thought of as 'funny'? And how old can a joke get? 

Join Devorah Baum, author of The Jewish Joke and writer and comedian David Baddiel who will be dissecting the Jewish joke, with examples.

Ticket includes a copy of the book (rrp. £9.99)

This event will have live subtitles. If you are d/Deaf, deafened or hard of hearing, you can book your ticket here.
