Nearly 91 year old Harold Finkelstein shares lots of laughs

Harold Finkelstein will be 91 years young in August and he is quite the funny character. Last year the Côte Saint-Luc resident, married to his beloved Ruth for 68 years,  sat down with his younger friend Sheldon Grekin who rolled the camera and recorded  25 minutes of his one liners.  He calls them  “Harold’s old jokes on the phone.”  Years ago Harold managed the career of his brother Marty Hill, a recording artist and song writer. “The video was Marty’s idea,” he says. “Every time we spoke on the phone I told him a joke.”
Harold contacted me this week and urged me to review his work. I will be sharing it with my friends at the Comedy Nest.
