'Old Jews' Take Jokes To The Stage

In the off-Broadway comedy Old Jews Telling Jokes, doctors, business owners, lawyers and mothers, all of "a certain age" tell jokes and one-liners such as, "Why don't Jewish mothers drink? They don't want to dull the pain." Producer Daniel Okrent and star Marilyn Sokol talk about Jewish humor.
