CATSKILLS on the DELAWARE NEW YEAR'S EVE: Featuring Bob Greenberg, Star of Old Jews Telling Jokes!
Year's Eve with the best Jewish comedians, and a nosh. You'll laugh
till you plotz!
7pm; Show: 8pm
Comedians Joey Novick, Bob Greenberg, and Scott Blakeman each

Belt from the 1940s to the 1960s—the Catskill Mountains in
upstate New York was THE place to be for the Jewish community in

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 stand up comedy. Aspiring
comics learned their craft in the Catskills, which soon became a
laboratory for modern comedy.

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!
