Editorial Reviews

Review

“Although he continues to present people in less-than-flattering terms ― nobody’s about to use a Drew Friedman portrait as their JDate profile ― his affectionate undertone continues to push its way to the fore. The Old Jewish Comedians series from Fantagraphics is frank yet loving.” (Jay Ruttenberg - The Comics Journal)

“This is a beautiful tribute to all the men & women who have made life a joy. If Job had a copy and had known these people, he would never had written that terrible book.” (Jerry Stiller)

“Drew Friedman is better than Picasso.” (Howard Stern)

“I’m proud to be in the old Jew book!” (Jerry Lewis)

In writing a review for this book, the third in the Old Jewish Comedians trilogy, there's hardly a reason to say anything except "even more." There are even more beautifully rendered portraits of well-seasoned performers... even more lovingly painted tributes to our great aging entertainers... even more exquisitely drawn likenesses of vintage comic talents. In short, even more old Jewish comedians. Never has a book title been so apropos.

Looking back at the contents of previous books, you can add "even more" to them as well. Wrinkles, warts and liver spots? Even more! Funny folks you fondly remember? Even more! The previous volume, More Old Jewish Comedians, had 32 pages. This book? Even more! (40 pages to be exact.)

I'm tempted to use the cliché "If you liked the other books you'll love this one." A better recommendation would be, "If you loved the previous books you'll love the third one even more!"

Yeah, I know there are some of nit-pickers out there. I'm sure there's a wise guy who will look at the full-page painting of Sam Levenson and say "You drew Sam with 117 liver spots, but he actually had 119." But I'm going with Drew on this. If Drew says there are 117, there are 117. Case closed.

I'd be remiss if I didn't mention the fine and funny intro by not-yet-old Jewish comedian Jeffrey Ross, which is the only thing in the book that wasn't in the previous two.

I urge you to buy two copies of this book. One to leave on your coffee table, and one to cut apart so you can frame your favorites. I think Marty Ingels would look great on the mantelpiece.

One of these days, Drew Friedman will be declared a National Treasure. He is a wonderfully gifted, perceptive artist. His caricatures of personalities - in this case, elderly Jewish funny-men & -women - are (liver)spot-on.

Included in this last OLD JEWISH COMEDIANS compilation are Richard Belzer, David Brenner, Norm Crosby, Stan Freberg, Marty Ingels, Sophie Tucker, Mel Blanc, Lou Jacobi, Marvin Kaplan, Steve Landesberg, Walter Matthau, Buddy Lester, Victor Borge, Weber & Fields, Abe Vigoda, etc.

Though Friedman doesn't spare the age lines, liver spots and what-not, his artworks are always affectionate. The result is an entertaining tribute to some very special entertainers "in the sunset of their years." Recommended.

Drew Friedman's "Old Jewish Comedians" triology are outstanding. The sketches capture the spirit and memories of each an every comedian who Friedman has memorialized through the vehicle of outstand drawing. Great table top and conversation pieces, I am also gempted to frame these drawing and make into my own personal Jewish Conedian Wall of Fame.
