Why do random Jewish holidays keep springing up unexpectedly? Why are yarmulkes round? Who was the first Jewish comedian?
These baffling questions and many more are answered by the comedic powerhouse trio of Dave Barry, Adam Mansbach, and Alan Zweibel. In A Field Guide to the Jewish People the authors dissect every holiday, rite of passage, and tradition, unravel a long and complicated history, and tackle the tough questions that have been plaguing the long-suffering Jewish people everywhere for centuries.
Join Zweibel (an original Saturday Night Live writer and has won five Emmy awards for his work in television which includes It’s Garry Shandling’s Show and Curb Your Enthusiasm) as he shares his wisdom and comedy with us.
