20th Century were a summer paradise for
millions — and the birthplace of great comic
careers. Mel Brooks, Sid Caesar, Rodney
Dangerfield, Joan Rivers, Jackie Mason and
many others learned to win laughs from the
patrons of Grossingers, Browns, The Concord,
Kutchers, and The Nevele, just to name a few.
Entertainment historian John Kenrick will give
a multimedia talk on this rich comic tradition,
with hilarious videos clips and tales of the
golden age of Borscht Belt comedy.
