Arnold Brown on the UK's first ever Jewish comedy festival
27th November 2014

The first-ever UK Jewish Comedy Festival starts this Saturday night at JW3 in Hampstead.

Joining Louise Scodie was comedian Arnold Brown, who is hosting Arnold Brown's Comedy Question next Thursday as part of the festival. 

Arnold talks through the strong Jewish presence on the UK comedy scene and gives his take on why the big names haven't used their Jewish identity as part of their act, unlike many American counterparts.
