Old Jews Telling Jokes
In 2010 OJTJ was published as a paperback book by Villard. Written by Sam Hoffman with Eric Spiegelman, it is subtitled 5000 Years of Funny Bits and Not-So-Kosher Laughs." Its chapters consist of jokes and humorous anecdotes contributed by several Jewish personalities, including Ed Koch, Norman Stiles, John Pleshette and Annie Korzen. In the introduction Hoffman says his book "categorized the jokes into chapters, roughly tracing the trajectory of the Jewish experience in America". In addition to the book, the OJTJ series has also been distributed on DVD, as two audio books, a successful BBC Four television series and was named one of the Top 5 podcasts on iTunes in 2010.
In 2011 OJTJ won an Audie Award for Humor.
In May 2012, OJTJ opened as an off-broadway play at the Westside Theater.
