The production, according to press notes, "showcases five actors in a revue that pays tribute to and reinvents classic jokes of the past and present. Think you’ve heard them all before? Not this way. The show also features comic songs — brand-new and satisfyingly old — as well as tributes to some of the giants of the comedy world and to the brilliant raconteurs from OldJewsTellingJokes.com, the website that inspired the show."
The creative team also includes set and video designer David Gallo, lighting designer Jeff Croiter, costume designer Alejo Vietti and sound designer Richard Fitzgerald/Sound Associates with animation by Steve Channon and musical supervision/arrangements by Adam Wachter.
Westside Theatre is located at 407 W. 43rd Street. Tickets are $80 and are available at telecharge.com or by calling (212) 239-6200.
