Why have Jews dominated the entertainment industry? How is it that so many writers, composers, performers, directors and producers are Jewish?
THAT’S JEWISH ENTERTAINMENT presents a cornucopia of Jewish talent, with song, dance and comedy spanning decades of Jewish life. From the shtetls of Eastern Europe to Broadway. From Yiddish folk songs to Hollywood blockbusters.
It’s been a long bitter-sweet journey, and on the way contributors to this entertainment heritage are artists such as:
THE MARX BROTHERS / FANNY BRICE / WOODY ALLEN / MEL BROOKS / BARBRA STREISAND
JACKIE MASON / JERRY HERMAN / SID CAESER / JOAN RIVERS / BETTE MIDLER
…and many, many more!
From Louis B Mayer to Steven Spielberg. From The Jazz Singer to Yentl. From fiddlers in the shtetl to Fiddler on the Roof.

Etherege’s rarely performed The Man of Mode sparkles with wit, romance and scandal. In an age where a person’s quality is measured by the cut of their coat, the pursuit of pleasure is more important than principles.
Presented by Chris Taylor
