The Legendary Jackie Mason Returns
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.
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.
