When Comedy Went to School

Episode 1 of 1

WHEN COMEDY WENT TO SCHOOL is an entertaining portrait that tells the story of the Catskill hotels and bungalow colonies that provided the setting for a remarkable group of young Jewish-American comedians who re-defined stand-up and sketch comedy and forever altered the course of American humor. Comic legends Jerry Lewis, Sid Caesar, Jackie Mason, Mort Sahl, Dick Gregory, Jerry Stiller and others offer their unique, heartfelt, and oftentimes hilarious anecdotes about what the Catskills meant to their careers.
