"When he hits the spot, though, he shows he has still got it. There’s nothing pitying about the standing ovation at the end."
With a long history of his forefathers becoming rabbis, Jackie Mason was destined for a life in the synagogue before he bucked the trend and became one of the most recognisable and accomplished borscht belt comedians of the 60s and 70s. With the ability to deftly combine a self-deprecating humour with a playful arrogance, his acerbic wit explored every topical subject from his own religion to American Culture. The 84 year old stand up hasn't lost his touch, so catch him at B.B. King Blues Club in New York , NY , showing for one date only on 6 May 2017!
Described as an 'equal opportunity offender' Mason's material is suited to mature audiences and those who can laugh at themselves. His wry observational comedy, political satire and improvisational skills are punctuated by his distinctive lower-east side drawl, imbuing his takes on Judaism, marriage and race with an authenticity and old-school sense of showmanship you'd be hard-pressed to find amongst comics today.
