MASSACHSETTS PREMIERE – Jerry Seinfeld, Larry David, Dave Foley, and Martin Short contribute to this hilarious must-see documentary. David Steinberg—aptly described as a cross between Woody Allen and Lenny Bruce—took the comedy world by storm in the 1960s. Steinberg’s satiric, literate and defiantly Jewish material landed him on Nixon’s enemies list and on Johnny Carson’s Tonight Show couch more than 100 times (second only to Bob Hope). Today, Steinberg is a sought after comedy director.
