    Atlanta Comedian Jerry Farber Reflects On 55-Year Career

    In 1989, Atlanta comedian Jerry Farber did a very avant-garde thing. He opened the first non-smoking comedy club in United States. Ted Turner showed up with a cigar because he thought it was a joke…
    One of his friends made a short documentary about his life as an older comedian on the road. It’s called “Jerry-atric: One Comic’s 77-Year Climb to the Top of the Bottom” and will premiere at the Atlanta Jewish Film Festival in 2016.
