Film, Documentaries

Time Out says

This documentary looks at three Jewish comedians, whose fathers were in concentration camps. It doesn't sound like a barrel of laughs, yet the mixture of tragedy and comedy makes for a stimulating film. Character comic Deb Filler recalls how her school friends used to think her dad's tattoo was his telephone number; 'Austen Tayshus' muses on the conflict between assimilating and retaining his history; and Moshe Waldoks poses the profound question - if Jewish parents want all their children to be doctors, how did so many turn out to be comics?
