About When Comedy Went to School

When Comedy Went to School tells the story of the Catskill hotels and bungalow colonies that provided the setting for a group of young Jewish-American comedians who re-defined stand-up and sketch comedy and forever altered the course of American humor. Comic legends Jerry Lewis, Sid Caesar, Jackie Mason, Mort Sahl, Dick Gregory, Jerry Stiller and others offer heartfelt and hilarious anecdotes.
