When Jews Were Funny is director Alan Zweig's personal exploration into the roots and the manifestations of his Jewish identity, and particularly the question of how this Jewishness of his has persisted though he's done nothing to maintain it. He begins his exploration by trying to answer a question that's intrigued him since childhood. Why were all the comedians he watched on TV in the fifties and sixties, Jewish?
