Old Jewish Comedians

Old Jewish Comedians by Drew Friedman

"A festival of drawing virtuosity and fabulous craggy faces. Drew Friedman might very well be the Vermeer of the Borscht Belt." – The New York Times Book Review

"Drew Friedman isn't just a brilliant artist. He takes you to a place. He takes you back in time. He makes you smell the stale cigarettes and cold brisket and you say, thank you for the pleasure." – Sarah Silverman

"Fabulous... sensational... on the nose. He really gets their attitude." – The Los Angeles Times

"Will have casual fans and serious collectors plotzing with joy over these greats of a bygone era." – The Forward

"A book that just begs to be shared. If you can look at them without smiling, you have no heart." – USA Today
