MONTREAL PREMIERE! Why are there so many Jewish comedians? When Comedy Went to School shines a spotlight on the golden generation of American comedians. Comedy icons Mel Brooks, Sid Caesar, Jackie Mason, Larry King , Mort Sahl, Jerry Stiller, Jerry Lewis and Joan Rivers tell stories about their start in New York’s Catskill Mountains, aka the Borscht Belt. Rare clips present early performances of comedy greats such as Woody Allen, Rodney Dangerfield and Lenny Bruce, Don Rickles, Billy Crystal and a young Danny Kaye and Jerry Seinfeld. Incredibly entertaining!
