Take My Wife — Please! — To the Catskills

Filmmakers Mevlut Akkaya and Ron Frank interview the alter kockers and big machers of Borscht Belt stand-up in When Comedy Went to School. It’s opening this month, so you can spend 98 minutes in the Catskills this summer. Warning:  The food won’t be as good (and such small portions …).
