Today's Jewish comics are being themselves, and the understated Jewish flavor of Seinfeld has been replaced by a matter-of-factness that would make earlier Jewish comics cringe. Author Simcha Weinstein calls this new comic sensibility the shtick shift. These comedians offer fresh perspectives on familiar themes in Jewish humor: money, family, faith, politics, and bigotry. Shtick Shift aims to be a primer to the ever-changing face of Jewish comedy in the twenty-first century.

"The understated "Jew-ish" flavor of 20th century comedy is over and has been replaced by a brutal matter-of-factness that would make earlier generations cringe." "Simcha Weinstein calls this new comic sensibility the Shtick Shift."

Your personal primer to the ever-changing face of Jewish comedy at the dawn of the 21st century: the new faces, their outrageous routines, and their sometimes surprising seriousness about the most pressing and depressing issues of our time.
