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.

NATURAL BORN STORYTELLERS

TICKETS: £5.00

Our shows are friendly. open, intimate and honest and the stories moving, life-affirming, shocking, captivating or just plain hilarious. It’s different to a comedy show where the expectation is laughter… here laughter comes, but it’s a part of a whole breadth of other emotions and reactions to the stories and it makes for a rich, fulfilling evening’s entertainment.

Come on down and experience one of the friendliest and most memorable nights London has to offer. We’d love you to get involved, whether it’s telling a story, suggesting a new theme or just coming down to watch the night, there is something for everyone at Natural Born Storytellers.

“You are definitely onto something here. This was one hell of an evening. Like really properly captivating stories that enthralled, moved, tickled, challenged and above all entertained. Such a brilliant event”
