Forget Antitrust and Judaism - the Best Program on TV Has got to Be the BBC's "Old Jews Telling Jokes"

Posted by D. Daniel Sokol

On Monday I moderated an excellent program for the ABA Section of Antitrust Law on Antitrust and Judaism. It should be up shortly on the ABA's website. I note with great enthusiasm a new show that Ariel Ezrachi (Oxford - Law) has brought to my attention - BBC4's Old Jews Telling Jokes. The show is exactly what the title suggests - a bunch of old Jewish men (and ocassionally women) telling jokes. Some are off color and some are family friendly. One of my favorites involved a guy who started telling the joke in English and then switched to Yiddish (for which subtitles were provided).

A number of the segments are available for free on ITunes.
