Event Details

Description

About the Book: Cartoon and Humor Editor for Esquire and former New Yorker Cartoon Editor Bob Mankoff gathers his favorite Jewish cartoons and writes an introduction in which he shows how his Jewish heritage helped him to become a success­ful cartoonist, examines the place of cartoons in the vibrant history of Jewish humor, and plumbs Jewish thought wisdom and shtick for humorous insights. Mankoff has written:>I always think that it's strange that the Jews, The People of the Book, eventually became much better known as The People of the Joke. Strange because laughter in the Old Testament is not a good thing: When God laughs, you’re toast. If you say “Stop me if you’ve heard this one” he does for good…. Now am I worried that these cartoons will bring His wrath down upon me down with a bolt from the blue. Not really but every time there’s a thunderstorm I hide in the cellar.”
