The songs of Allan Sherman will have you rolling in the aisles as we learn about the man who was the greatest Jewish parodist of the 20th Century with songs such as Sarah Jockman, Al 'N Yetta, Harvey and Sheila and Shake Hands with Your Uncle Max. Allan Sherman was the Larry David, the Adam Sandler, the Sacha Baron Cohen of 1963.

His meteoric rise to fame with albums such as My Son the Folk Singer and My Son the Celebrity unfortunately couldn't allay the fears and neurosis of this plagued artist. Laugh out loud as we embrace the brilliance of this creative genius in Discovering Allan Sherman.

"Sherman's legacy was a touchstone of postwar humor and a turning point in Jewish American cultural history."
Mark Cohen, author of "Overweight Sensation: The Life and Comedy of Allan Sherman"
