Abstract
Why are there so many Jewish comedians? Get the answer to this question with a portrait of the country's greatest generation of comics that includes Jerry Lewis, Sid Caesar, Jackie Mason, Mort Sahl, and Jerry Stiller. It is also found in upstate New York's Catskill Mountains, where Jewish immigrants transformed farmland into the 20th century's largest resort complex. It was the setting for a remarkable group of young Jewish-American comedians to hone their craft and become legends.
