More Old Jewish Comedians

Unknown - 2008
Rate this:
This comprehensive collection of portraiture of Jewish comedians is a sequel to 2006's wildly successful Old Jewish Comedians , which earned Friedman raves from Jerry Lewis, Howard Stern, The Believer , Entertainment Weekly, and many more, and earned Friedman his own roast at New York's legendary Friar's Club. This all-new collection includes the famous (Woody Allen, Carl Reiner, Mel Brooks, Soupy Sales, etc.), the not-so-famous (Jerry Stiller, Zeppo & Gummo Marx, Larry Storch, Zero Mostel, etc.) and the largely unknown (Molly Picon, Herbie Faye, Jan Milton, etc.). The Reuben Award-winning Friedman, one of the great caricaturists of his age, presents a thorough visual history of the 20th Century's greatest Borscht-Belt comedians through 28 full-page portraits; every crease, mustache hair, and liver spot looks utterly real. As Booklist put it, "If only we were all funny enough to get Friedman to draw us!"
