Shtick Shift: Jewish Humor in the 21st Century


Today's Jewish comics are being themselves, and the understated Jewish flavor of Seinfeld has been replaced by a matter-of-factness that would make earlier Jewish comics cringe. Author Simcha Weinstein calls this new comic sensibility the shtick shift. These comedians offer fresh perspectives on familiar themes in Jewish humor: money, family, faith, politics, and bigotry. Shtick Shift aims to be a primer to the ever-changing face of Jewish comedy in the twenty-first century.
