Michael GradeBarely a day since revealing he would be defecting form the BBC and joining ITV, really bad jokes about Michael Grade have started to appear on Jewish humour sites.

The 63-year-old who will command a £825,000 a year plus bonus salary as executive chairman of ITV has become a firm favourite for crap Jewish jokers.

The cigar smoking, red socks wearing and Yiddish speaking TV executive aims to bring ITV back into being a major player.

Most of the so-called “jokes” refer to his Jewish background and making decisions to “Jew up” the ITV schedule.

Among the recent additions you can endure at: JewishJokes.co.uk are:

I’m A Mensch, Get Me Out of Here.  12 pillars of the Jewish community including Rabbis and other lay leaders get stranded in Brooklyn, New York and have to endure a series of tests to see how Jewish they can be.

The Aleph Factor. The show to find the next Jewish superstar.

A return to Crossroads. This time based on a Jewish B&B in Bournemouth.

Weekly soap opera set in Prestwich, north west England called Circumcision Street and is about the daily lives of Jews living in Street.

The return of kids show TISWAS (Today is Shabbos With A Smile).

Ant and Decs Kosher TakeAway.
