Your hosts Mark, Lawrence, Sarahlyn, and Al discover the characteristics of Jewish comedy with stand-up/graphic novelist Daniel, whose movie Reconquistador explores his ancestors being kicked out of Spain. What’s the connection of Jewish humor to anti-semitism?
We speak about relating as a creator to your identity, Jewish people seeing themselves in movie and TV, the experience of literally seeing yourself in a movie, Jewish comedy as philosophy or social commalestary, and “Jewish humor” vs. humor by people who happen to be Jewish.
We contact on Mel Brooks, Larry David, Adam Sandler, Woody Allen, Lenny Bruce, and feminist Jewish comedy reveals equivalent to Broad Metropolis, Loopy Ex-Ladypal, and Inside Amy Schumer.
FYI this was fileed again in early November when the Gaza warfare and its accompanying flurry of anti-Semitism was a bit extra uncooked.
Follow us @DanielLobell, @law_writes, @sarahlynbruck, @ixisnox, @MarkLinsenmayer.
