Peter Gethers and Dan Okrent, via

On October 3, a bit more than a week after their Off-Broadway hit Old Jews Telling Jokes begins a week of previews at Chicago’s Royal George Theatre prior to its two-month run, the show’s creators Peter Gethers and Dan Okrent are scheduled to appear in conversation with local humorist and former TV honcho/sports anchor Mike Leiderman at the Spertus Institute for Jewish Learning and Leadership on S. Michigan.

Leiderman moderates, and the presentation includes video excerpts from the Chicago production that stars Dara Cameron, Alex Goodrich, Tim Kazurinsky, Renee Matthews and Gene Weygandt.
