Bernstein is back

Fans of Jewish comedy character Sol Bernstein - the brainchild of comedian Steve Jameson - have another chance to see him bring his unique brand of foul-mouthed geriatric humour back to London in December with a reworking of his show The Chutzpah Clinic.
The new version of the show follows on from one which has been performed on stage in previous years, featuring guest appearances from the likes of Jewish comics Helen Lederer, Adam Bloom and Josh Howie.
It sees Sol - who at 85 years old claims to be the world's oldest Jewish comedian - enlisting the help of his own private medic and therapist Dr Brian Kaplan in order to offer self-help and advice to audience members, who will be able to chat to the pair during the course of the show.
While previous shows have seen him draw on his life experiences, which include escaping the pogroms in Russia and the Nazis in Germany to forge a career as an all-round entertainer and funnyman, his main aim this time around is to help people get what they want out of life.
Dr Kaplan, meanwhile, promises to offer 'provocative style advice' about day to day issues - combined with a healthy dose of humour.
The performance will take place on December 4, at Downstairs At The King's Head, 2 Crouch End Hill, London N8 8AA
