OLD JEWISH JOKES

TICKETS: £10

Written and performed by Ivor Dembina.

Old Jewish Jokes’ tells the story of a modern Jewish comedian invited to perform at a synagogue benefit function, but upon arrival at the venue for the show, he is given a shopping list of subjects he mustn’t joke about.

In Old Jewish Jokes’ we enjoy the predicament of an ethnic comedian being censored by his own community. Its a fun, revealing and truthful story which also provides an excellent opportunity to hear once again some of the world’s favourite old Jewish Jokes.

NATHAN CASSIDY: If I caused the financial crash of 2008 (preview)

Award-winning comedian Nathan Cassidy’s explosive new show. Ex-banker Cassidy exposes the secrets behind the 2008 financial crash. It was all down to him. If he did it.

‘Such a safe pair of hands… here he ambitiously suggests he might have been responsible for the 2008 financial crash. There’s a smart mischief to the material, while his piercingly sarcastic jibes at better-paid entertainers have a touch of the Stewart Lee to them’ Chortle Oct 2017
