Billy Crystal to host documentary on Ameriican Comedy

Which is just an evolution of Jewish humor in America...

I just saw this in a newsletter and for my sake, I hope this is on PBS:
Billy Crystal signed on to host the six-hour documentary series Make 'Em Laugh: The Funny Business of America produced by Thirteen/WNET New York and Ghost Light Films. The documentary, which is slated to air next January, will look at the various forms of American comedy and its evolution as it relates to social issues, political change and its commentary on American life. It will also look at some of the top comedic talents from the past and present such as Charlie Chaplin, Jack Benny, Lucille Ball, Carol Burnett, George Carlin, Jon Stewart and more.
