Why are there so many Jewish comedians? Lawrence Richards is the Writer/Producer of this film, which explores this provocative question in a seriously side splitting look at the Borscht Belt and the Catskills resort era. A post-screening panel moderated by Mr. Richards will include Catskills scholar Joe Dorinson; superlative comediennes Jackie Hoffman (currently starring in On The Town) and Marilyn Michaels (star of Catskills on Broadway); and a possible surprise guest.

Tickets: $20 in advance, $25 at the door, $15 for AT members and students under age 18.

Part of HOT NIGHTS @ A COOL SHUL, a new Monday night series that seeks to stimulate dialogue about American and global Jewish culture through engaging, entertaining and thought-provoking films, play readings, cabaret acts, musical performances, and panel discussions. Produced by Joan Finkelstein and Carol Ostrow.
