The film is about the greatest generation of American Comedians. A remarkable group including Jerry Lewis, Sid Caesar, Lenny Bruce, Mel Brooks, Joan Rivers, Billy Crystal, Jerry Seinfeld, Woody Allen and so many others who got their start in the Catskill Mountains. Faced with anti-Semitism and against all odds, Jewish immigrants built the largest resort area of the 20th century. Their unique performances, and the audiences who watched them, changed American humor forever.
