Jews have a centuries-old tradition of telling jokes, from the ghettos of Europe to Hollywood and the Catskills. Jewish jokes are entertainment, the oral history of a culture, insightful social criticism, and survival tactic rolled into one.
In 2008, Hollywood director and producer Sam Hoffman launched a website called Old Jews Telling Jokes. It’s just what it says: Jewish men and women over 60 sharing their favorite stories, tales, riddles, and punchlines.
The jokes are funny and reassuringly familiar, each told with gusto and infused with a lifetime of experience. For the audiobook, they are organized into chapters: Jewish Mothers, Food, Rabbis, Husbands and Wives, Sex, Illness and Doctors, Getting Old, Death, Oral Sex. Yes, you read that right. You’ll also hear judiciously chosen curses and other off-color language. Things get risqué. So what can you do? Enjoy, and laugh out loud.

Mostly very funny, jokes told in original voices
molto fumo poco arrosto - lot of smoke for a small
Too much talking, unnecessary introduction to people one does not know or need to know, and not enougbh essence- which are the jokes one bought the book for.
more jokes,less talk. I guess some people are difficult to shiut up
This audio book is but an extremely poor reproduction of Jewish joke books printed decades ago. Half of the jokes are old material.
