When Jews Were Funny - Laughter, Oppression And Jewish Identity

With his newest film, When Jews Were Funny, documentarian Alan Zweig’s explores the history of Jewish comedy and its reciprocal relationship with Jewish identity. Married to a non-Jewish wife and with a new child at age 60,  Zweig’s motivation is personal – a nagging and troubling sense of the loss of a distinct Jewish identity; that the very things which allowed the great Jewish comedians of old a rise to prominence are fading away due in part to their success and the resulting assimilation of Jewish sensibilities into the greater American culture.
