In A Jewish Joke, a curmudgeonly Jewish comedy screenwriter from MGM comes up against the Communist blacklist in 1950's Hollywood. Funny and lovable, Bernie Lutz has made his way up the ladder by being a spineless Hollywood sellout. He now has to make the biggest decision of his life. The night before a big red carpet premiere that will make Bernie's career, he has been asked to name names and give up a friend. Armed with stories about the great era of Jewish humor, this poignant and funny solo comedy shows one small man facing the tough American events of the mid-20th century and looking into the depths of his own soul.  A Jewish Joke had its World Premiere in San Diego in May and its Chicago premiere at Victory Gardens Theatre this past July. Presented as part of the 2016 United Solo Festival.
