A priest, a rabbi and a minister go on the Jay Leno show*
Writers are still striking NBC here, so Jay Leno, unlike union man Dave Letterman in New York, has to write his own material and book guests who write as well.
In this recent Tonight Show bit, an actual priest, an actual rabbi, and an actual minister tell ‘priest, rabbi and minister’ jokes.
The rabbi is Levi Cunin of Chabad in Malibu, who we last featured during the Malibu fires, when he packed a Torah scroll in the back of his car in case they had to evacuate.
* Update: NBC got this video yanked from YouTube because of copyright issues.
The jokes are an interesting contrast.
Only the priest tells a joke on himself; Rabbi Cunin tells a ‘Jews are smart’ joke and makes the priest in his story sound all Kosher for Passover; the minister’s joke is vaguely sexist.
They are LOL material, though!
