Some thing's never
and in the case of Jackie Mason, that's good
He's not a
pretty face, can not sing or dance and is not a sharp dresser, but he is a
stand-up comic's stand-up comic.
You know, delivery
is everything, but it does not apply
only to Greg Maddux or to a
pick-up line delivered at a singles bar
Jackie Mason appearing at the
Stardust has his delivery down pat.
They say "he is too
Jewish" (what ever that means). Maybe that's the way you can tell the
difference between him and George Wallace
Maybe being too Jewish makes
him one of the funniest comics this columnist has ever seen
Jewish has given him the real life experience of the "put down"
he still is one of the best.
I've seen Jackie
Mason several times (live and on TV) through the years and he always has
fresh material. This night at the 'Dust was no exception.
Mason has earned a Tony Award, an Outer Critics Circle Award, an Ace
Award, an Emmy Award, and a Grammy nomination. He returned to Broadway in
1990 with "Jackie Mason: Brand New;" in 1994 with "Jackie Mason:
Politically Incorrect;" in 1996 with "Love Thy Neighbor;" in 1999 with
"Much Ado About Everything;" and in 2002 with "Prune Danish." With each
production a critical and commercial success, Jackie Mason made history in
the theater industry and collected an impressive array of nominations and
awards from the Outer Critics Circle, the Grammy's, the Ace Awards and
others. An HBO special, "Jackie Mason on Broadway," earned him both an
Emmy and an Ace Award.
Regrettably, I could
not understand every line of his mumbling repertoire and he made fun of
Sylvester Stallone? (I didn’t hear everything partly because I am a little
hard of hearing and partly because we were sitting too close.)
One of the greatest bits that Jackie does, is THE funniest impersonation of Ed
Sullivan this writer has ever seen. I mean this is just TOO FUNNY!!!!!!
It was 90 minutes of
smiles, nods, clapping and belly laughs by an appreciative audience.
Jackie has always touched on a wide-range of subjects.
Be sure to catch Jackie Mason for a night of genius comedy!
He is a must see, and at the modest price of $49.95, it is a true bargain.
Jackie is appearing at the Stardust from Feb. 7 to Feb. 26 at 8:00
