What's so funny about the Jews? One might indeed ask this quesion if one considers the probably unexamined but not infrequently displayed assumption in American public thought that the Jews, whatever else they may be, are a natural occasion for laughter. This study sets out, in Part I, to test the contention that such a public habit of thought exists by analyzing the current general output in films, theatre, television, and popular books, the entertainment media that originate as well as reflect public attitudes. Includes an Index.

(Key Words: Jewish Comic Images, Jews, Judaica, Humor, Sig Altman, Performing Arts, Pop Culture, Entertainment, Laughter, Tonight Show, Self-Image, Synagogues, Yiddish, Moses Mendelssohn, Merv Griffin, Heinrich Heine, Jewish Comedians, Jack Benny, Shalom Aleichem).
