CATSKILLS ON THE DELAWARE! SATURDAY, OCTOBER 23, at THE BORSCHT BELT in STOCKTON, NJ
THE BORSCHT BELT 19 BRIDGE
STREET STOCKTON, NJ
DINNER 6PM SHOWTIME 7PM
& Catskills Comedy Show
An evening of the best Jewish comedians, and a nosh
You'll laugh till you plotz!™
Jewish Comedians Joey Novick, Nicholle Kun, and Bob
Greenberg each perform a standup set designed to recall the kind of
comedy often performed at the resorts in the Catskills Mountains in
The Borscht Belt from the 1940s to the 1960s—the Catskill
Mountains in upstate New York was THE place to be for the Jewish
community in the Northeast. Each summer, families would visit one
of the many hotels in the region for relaxation, cultural
camaraderie, food (endless amounts of food!), and COMEDY entertainment.
Out of this crazy mishegoss grew what we now know as standup
comedy. Aspiring comics learned their craft in the Catskills, which
soon became a laboratory for modern comedy.
Superstars such as Jerry Lewis, Mel Brooks, Buddy Hackett, Carl
Reiner, Mal Z. Lawrence, Jerry Stiller, Danny Kaye, Lenny Bruce,
Sid Caesar all got their start at these legendary resorts, learning
what worked—and what didn’t—and how they could make their own
mark. They started out as tummlers, and became comedy legends!
So, schlepp back in time to comedy in the Catskill Mountains with
The Borscht Belt—grab a sandwich, and enjoy laughs and a nosh!
Ticket price includes the comedy show and a great sandwich nosh and
soda—just like in the Catskills!
