Jewish Humor


Jewish Humor:

A Window into Jewish Culture

Date: July 25 (Mon)

Time: 12:15

Where: Wilmette Public Library

Loyola University Professor Jeffry Mallow was exposed to Jewish jokes early in life (his father told them) but his joke collection began in earnest when he was a graduate student and bought some books on Jewish humor. He was hooked. That led to his joke-collecting habit and many gigs as a standup comic with the Maxwell Street Klezmer Band.
