This text deals with ten important Jewish American comedians from an historical perspective and in a systematic manner. The focus is on the impact of Judaism on these humourists and on their relations to American culture and character. The performers have played an important part in American popular culture and their humour reflects interesting and important things about American society. Throughout the book there is a discussion of techniques used by these comedians and examples of their humour.
