5.9/10
Documentary 20131h 29mOn: Free Services Prime Video 

From the 1930's to the 1970's, pretty well every comedian or comic you might see on TV or the movies was Jewish. Jews came to dominate the world of western‐society comedy on radio, stage and screen alike.Why did Jews dominate comedy in this period? And why did that domination end? Were Jews just funnier back then? And if so, did that extend to your average Jew on the street? In this 90 minute documentary acclaimed director Alan Zweig will examine these questions and many others in this exploration of 20th century humour, cultural decay, and a search for a missing heritage.When Jews Were Funny featuring Shecky Greene and Howie Mandel is streaming with subscription on Prime Video, free on Tubi TV, available for rent or purchase on iTunes, and 1 other. It's a documentary movie with a better than average Rotten Tomatoes (critics) score of 67% and an average IMDb audience rating of 5.9 (398 votes).
