Brews and Jews

David Kronke on Friday's episode of Law and Order:

Chevy Chase gives his funniest performance in about two decades as Mitch Carroll, a washed-up entertainer.

Through a clenched jaw that apparently serves as character development, Chevy's Mitch spews such invective as:

"Are you a Jew? You're a Jew, right? I should've known they'd stick me in a room with a Jew cop! I'm not talking to any Jew!"

and "They suck the money out of this town so they can send it to Israel to make bombs and matzo."

I've never seen a single episode of any Law and Order series, but I may have to tune in for this one.
