** Borscht Belt

** "Jewish Alps" is a term for the summer resort hotels of the Catskill Mountains in upstate New York.  A popular vacation spot from the 1920's - 1970's serving  3 sumptuous meals a day, Simon Sez, sports, dancing, romancing & comedy talent.  And, they served Matzo Ball Soup & cold Borscht!

I don't want to beet around the bush - but Russians do have a sense of humor.  And, one of those jokesters just climbed up on stage...

"And now, straight from "The Kiev Kiosk" - here's the top female comic in the USSR - Buffy Korsekov"!

You guessed it - my comedy idols are the Marx Brothers - Groucho & Karlo!

Splat!

I don't need this you know - I could go home & clean...Missiles!

You know, Russia is cold - but, it's a dry cold!

It's so cold - babies are born with an electrical cord!

I'm not kidding - it's so cold we wear mittens in foreplay!

Our blankets have 2 Settings - 3 Dog Night & Olga!

I see I found the level of this crowd!

In Russia, we have magazine just like Cosmopolitan with catchy subtitles on the cover:

"The Ugly Flat Stomach...how to get rid of it forever"!

"Fat Cells - the gift that keeps on giving"!

And, "You're Not Just Getting Better...you're getting bigger"!

Sit down, Mom!

What do I think of Mrs. Trump? Ha...I've seen more meat in broth!

My last gig was "The Mike Flynn Lifetime Achievement Dinner" - no caviar...Turkey on a Ritz!

This is a tough crowd!

I dated the 2 Sergei's after they visited the White House & both said the same thing. "Great acoustics & sound levels"!

Don't laugh - that's normal Pillow Talk in Russia!

But Ambassador Kislyak was bored & said, "Spying is too easy these days - Trump showed me the frigin' key under the mat to let myself in"!

Do I think Trump was in cahoots with Putin - ha.  Mrs. Putin hasn't seen his cahoots in years!

Just kidding - I was doing this entire routine phonetically & wouldn't know a cahoot from a back channel!

Start the car, Igor!

Folks - catch me next week at "The Beluga Bathhouse" - first 10 tickets get Golden Showers!

I've been great - thank you very much!

That's better!

Happy to say this can also be seen in "Humor Times Magazine" but with more Hecklers!

'Thanks for stopping by J.P.  a little risqué "Leave it to Beaver" comedy.'

MARILYN?! no

Beave knocked on the batroom door! Ward Cleaver was in da shower.  And it wasn't until senior melodiously segued into Summer Wiind . . .

(my fickle friend . . .) [FADE]

CREDITS ~ abreviated ~

and then the glorious Dinah Shore commercial: See the USA-in your Chevrolet-America's asking you to call! 

I just don't know. Maybe all the Cleaver's were living on carry-outs from Alice's Restaurant.

Keep on keeping on, Marilyn. You make me witty:})

Thanks again, Rodney.  Your piece today on Charlottesville was right on the money.  Like his underlings, Trump may have to resign before he is fired & that's no joke.

Thanks for stopping by J.P.  Waiting for all Republicans to step up before comedy resumes. Dream on...

Roughly 48 hours until Bill Maher.  Heard he's booked POTUS G.W. Bush.

From the mountains! To the prairie home companions!
