Books Info:

Jewish Humor on Your Desktop free pdf Jewish Humor on Your Desktop is a series of seven interactive eBooks that bring hundreds of funny Jewish videos and anecdotes to your favorite screen -- desktop or laptop computer, Kindle, iPad, iPhone, Android phone or tablet. Each video is introduced with a short written commentary explaining its back story. The anecdotes and videos are based on three years and 900 entries from Jewish Humor Central, a blog written by Al Kustanowitz, who has been studying, chronicling, and delivering Jewish humor for more than 30 years. This anthology includes the complete contents of all seven books in the series -- more than 400 anecdotes and more than 20 hours of video clips -- the best of Jewish Humor Central in one convenient package. We hope that it brings joy and laughter into your home and wherever you carry your laptop, tablet, and smartphone - not just on Purim, but throughout the year. The seven books in the series are: Vol. 1: Old Jokes and New Comedians This is the first book in the series. It retells some classic old Jewish jokes and introduces 40 stand-up comedians who are relatively new on the comedy circuit, with more than 50 direct links to video clips of their acts. Vol. 2: Israel is a Funny Country This second book in the series explores the multifaceted nature of humor in Israel, some of which is intentional and some of which is unintentional. Either way, the quirks of Israeli life contribute to making that life interesting and fulfilling. In the pages of this volume, we take a look at humorous slices of Israeli life, funny TV commercials, unusual stories about food, surprising rabbinic bans on daily activities, simchas as they can only be celebrated in Israel, endearing aspects of Israeli culture, a look at the growing phenomenon of flash mobs, and a glimpse of a few unusual Israeli sports. Vol. 3: Humor in Jewish Life (You Can't Make This Stuff Up) This third book in the series explores the funny, often hilarious situations that occur in everyday Jewish life, including anecdotes from the daily newspapers and blogs that are unbelievable but true. The book includes 67 anecdotes, most linked to online video clips totaling more than 3 hours. It covers funny incidents involving Jews of all denominations, unusual religious rituals, funny stories involving Jewish food, weddings, TV, music, dance, theater, story telling, and seniors having fun. Vol. 4: Jewish Traces in Unexpected Places This fourth book in the series presents anecdotes and associated video clips that reveal the myriad ways that Jewish culture, religion, humor, music, song, and dance have found expression in parts of the world that, at first glance, might not seem supportive of Jewish Life. Vol. 5: Yiddish is a Funny Language This fifth book in the series presents anecdotes and associated video clips that illustrate the colorful humor associated with the Yiddish language. Whether it's Yiddish jokes, Yiddish words and expressions, Yiddish song and dance, Yiddish in theater and film, or Yiddish cooking, you will chuckle at the ways this language of an Eastern Europe that was thought to be long gone has permeated modern Jewish life around the world today. Vol. 6: Jewish Holiday Hilarity This is the sixth and longest book in the series, titled Jewish Holiday Hilarity. This book presents more than 100 anecdotes and associated video clips of Jewish holiday humor that will bring holiday-appropriate laughter into your home on Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, Sukkot, Hanukkah, Tu B'Shvat, Purim, Passover, Lag B'Omer, and Shavuot. You'll find lots of links to the most popular music videos and funny parodies for each of the holidays, along with commentary that fills in some of the details about the singers, musicians, and comedians who created this holiday hilarity. Vol. 7: Yiddishe Nachas This last book in the series presents links to video clips and associated anecdotes that should provide the reader with a general feeling of warmth, happiness, and Jewish pri

About Al Kustanowitz

Al Kustanowitz founded Jewish Humor Central, an internet blog, in 2009, to bring a daily dose of fun and merriment to readers who would otherwise start the day reading news that is often drab, dreary, and depressing. Each day thousands of subscribers in 160 countries get it by email, Facebook, and Twitter. Subscriptions are free. The blog posts vary from day to day, and include jokes, satire, books, music, films, videos, food, unbelievable but true news items, and anything that brings a grin, chuckle, laugh, guffaw, or just a warm feeling to readers. Most are new, and some are classics. A long-term devotee of Jewish humor, Al has collected it even before there was an internet. For the last 25 years he has been editor and publisher of The Kustanowitz Kronikle, originally a family newsletter that went public when the Purim editions became too popular to keep private. Now they're all available on the internet. In 2012, Al wrote a series of seven interactive eBooks with the series title Jewish Humor on Your Desktop. The seven volumes are subtitled: Volume 1: Old Jokes and New Comedians Volume 2: Israel is a Funny Country Volume 3: Humor in Jewish Life - You Can't Make This Stuff Up Volume 4: Jewish Traces in Unexpected Places Volume 5: Yiddish is a Funny Language Volume 6: Jewish Holiday Hilarity Volume 7: Yiddishe Nachas All seven volumes and the complete collection in a single volume are available at Al delivers lectures on Jewish humor at synagogues, Jewish Community Centers, and other locations.
