Today on the Jewish Jokes Page, a look at a trio of Milwaukee's own comedic legends, who were not stand up comics, but gave us just as many laughs with their films.
Zucker, Abrahams and Zucker (abbreviated to ZAZ) were an American comedy filmmaking trio consisting of Jim Abrahams and brothers David Zucker and Jerry Zucker who specialized in writing slapstick comedy films during the 1980s. The trio knew each other during their childhood years, growing up in Shorewood, Wisconsin and attending Shorewood High School which is sometimes referenced in their work. While attending the University of Wisconsin–Madison, the trio founded a small theater known as The Kentucky Fried Theater in 1971 which led to their sketch comedy film The Kentucky Fried Movie.
This was followed in 1980 by the trio's breakout hit Airplane!, which remains a revered comedic milestone. Subsequent collaborations include the TV series Police Squad!, its subsequent Naked Gun trilogy and the films Top Secret! and Ruthless People. All of their projects relied heavily on parodies, visual gags and breaking of the fourth wall, and established a strong cult following. The notable stylistic exception is Ruthless People, a more traditional farce that was directed by the trio but unlike their other productions, not written by them.
Prominent ZAZ actors and actresses include Leslie Nielsen, Lloyd Bridges, Robert Stack, Rowan Atkinson, Whoopi Goldberg and Charlie Sheen. The trio's status as a three-person team of co-directors is highly unusual, although some of their later projects were directed by David Zucker working solo and with Jerry Zucker and Abrahams credited only as producers and/or writers. Each member of the group also had individual solo careers:
David Zucker directed BASEketball, My Boss's Daughter, Scary Movie 3 and 4.
Abrahams directed Hot Shots! and Jane Austen's Mafia!.
Jerry Zucker directed Ghost, First Knight and Rat Race.
Out of all the three, Jerry Zucker has found the most mainstream non-comedic success including Ghost and First Knight, which grossed $505 million and $127 million worldwide respectively.
Here are some of the best scenes from their classic movie, "Airplane"...

A man wanted to buy a parrot, so he goes to the pet shop and enquires about their stock. The attendant shows him a parrot which is quite exceptional in that it speaks any language you want. Intrigued by this, the man decides to test the bird by asking it a few questions:
M: "Do you speak English?"
M: "Hablas Espanol?"
M: "Parlez vouz Francaise?"
M: "Sprechen sie Deutsch?"
M: "Falas Portugues?"
After all his options were exhausted, the man thought for a while, then asked the parrot, "Do you speak Yiddish?"
The parrot shrugs its shoulders and says: "Nu? Mit a nose like dis, vot you tink?"
