Mark Cohen presents
OVERWEIGHT SENSATION: THE LIFE AND COMEDY OF ALLAN SHERMAN


Overweight Sensation: The Life and Comedy of Allan Sherman is the first published biography of the ground-breakng Jewish song parodist and humorist, written by Mark Cohen, the leading expert on Allan Sherman.

In time for the 50th anniversary of "Hello Muddah, Hello Fadduh," Cohen's book, based on his own exclusive access to papers and recordings held by Sherman's son and dozens of interviews, is the story of how Sherman's Jewish song parodies won him extraordinary fame and success and also changed American culture by leading Jewish comedy out of ethnic enclaves and into the American mainstream. Allan Sherman played Carnegie hall, befriended Harpo Marx, discovered and produced Bill Cosby, and sang for the National Press Club, the U.S. Department of Labor, and Lyndon Johnson's presidential campaign.

This event will be followed by a book sale and signing with Mark Cohen.


Tickets: $10 General; $8 JCC Members, Students, and Seniors
