Our home town boy did good! Dick Wolfsie is a favorite of Indy natives for his radio, TV and written appearances and his down to earth everyday humor and his quite distinguishable voice and humor. I expected laughter and got it. Dick obviously enjoys his profession as a humorist and as an audience member, I felt like I was sitting in his living room as he told some of his favorite stories.
What I did not necessarily expect was learning what makes a good Jewish joke and how Jewish jokes differ from other types of jokes. Apparently, he has hundreds of books on Jewish humor. Plus Dick shared a little family history and the start of his joke telling profession.
No spoiler here. If you want to have some laughs and know what makes a joke Jewish, go see The Art of the Jewish Joke. A solid performance worth watching.
Go see The Art of the Jewish Joke.
