Private: “Take My Wife, Please” – Jewish Comedy in America

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Humor is a tradition in Jewish life. In honor of the role that Jewish comedy and comedians have played in the life of 20th century America, the Sherwin Miller Museum tells their stories in this original summer exhibition. “Take My Wife, Please,” Henry Youngman’s iconic catchphrase, is the title of the summer exhibit, representing the level of influence that shtick has had on American life. Who could ever forget Groucho Marx and his eyebrows, the Three Stooges, or Mel Brooks? Come celebrate their contributions to our American life in this exhibit, and, bring your wife, please to the Mezzanine Gallery from June 3 to August 26, 2012.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
