THEATER REVIEW: “Old Jews Telling Jokes”

The news lately has been alternately scary, disgusting and head-shakingly nutty. At times like this, it’s good to forget all that and kick back with a quintet of “Old Jews Telling Jokes,” onstage through May 25 at the Lyceum Theatre.

It’s Borscht Belt night in this 90-minute jokefest touching on birth, courtship, marriage, death and those little annoyances in between (like doctors and rabbis).

“Old Jews Telling Jokes” is the brainchild of Daniel Okrent and Peter Gethers, who were inspired by the series of jokes on the website of the same name.

SAN DIEGO -- Versatile, multi-medium artist Clarione Gutierrez impresses audiences and buyers alike, showing prowess in graphic design, caricatures, fashion and his Launch Live Art, a local booking and contracting agency.

Born and raised in sunny San Diego, Gutierrez has a seemingly inherent knack for the visual arts, part of which he jokingly attributes to a trip to the renowned San Diego Zoo. But his versatility transcends the title of “artist,” as his talent is as engaging live as it is in a studio.
