In this hour, Forum's longtime host Michael Krasny finds himself on the other side of the microphone. His new book, "Let There Be Laughter," celebrates and analyzes Jewish humor -- its history, its cultural revelations, and of course, its jokes. Krasny, a collector of Jewish jokes, explores what makes Jewish humor so distinct. We'll talk to Krasny about his latest book and hear stories from his 20-plus years as Forum's host.
