Marx Brothers to Mrs. Maisel

Taught by Joyce Moser

This four-session class is a sampling of great Jewish comics, from the Marx Brothers to Sophie Tucker, Lenny Bruce, Jack Benny, Mel Brooks, Gilda Radner, Joan Rivers, Gary Shandling, Madeline Kahn, Jon Stewart, George Burns, Seth Rogen, Bette Midler and Sarah Silverman, among others. We'll go as far back as the 1920's, when the most popular films were about two families, the Cohens and the Kellys, as well as more recent examples.
