Reviews

"Mr Dauber deftly surveys the whole recorded history of Jewish humour..." -- The Economist
"Dauber's history of Jewish comedy is really one of how the past century's American-Jewish comedy relates to a deeper cultural heritage... it displays impressive mastery of the subject." -- The Spectator
