About the Play

Awarded Best Drama at 2016 United Solo Fest NYC, this comedy/drama is as relevant today as it was during the McCarthy Era. In 50’s Hollywood, at the height of the Communist Blacklist, a comedy writer learned firsthand that to be named a communist was the kiss of death to reputations, and careers, ruined by a whisper. He has one day to decide if he will accede to government demands and save his skin, or protect his friend and save his soul in the most serious decision of his life.

A story for all. This is a funny, heartfelt, and compelling drama about comedy.
Be sure to see A Jewish Joke in San Diego before its Off Broadway run in 2019!
