About Jackie Mason
Born in Sheboygan, Wisconsin, Jackie Mason was raised on the Lower East Side of Manhattan surrounded by rabbis — notably his father, grandfather, great-grandfather, great, great-grandfather, and three brothers. It’s no surprise that at age 25 Jackie was ordained a rabbi. Three years later he quit his job in a synagogue to become a comedian because, as he says, “Somebody in the family had to make a living.”
From humble comic beginnings in New York, Jackie Mason developed into one of the hottest comics in America. He reached the apex of American entertainment culture when he became a regular on the nation’s preeminent television variety program, “The Ed Sullivan Show.”
In December 1986, Jackie took his widely acclaimed one-man show, “The World According to Me,” to an unprecedented two and a half year run on Broadway, winning triumphant reviews, as well as 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.” He garnered consistent commercial success and collected an impressive array of nominations and awards, including an Emmy and an Ace award for the HBO special “Jackie Mason on Broadway, and his latest show “Freshly Squeezed,” which opened in 2005 and is still touring the world.
Long passionate about politics, Jackie Mason is well known for his tough and outspoken position on a variety of issues. He hosts a national live call-in show on the Comcast network, airing every Friday night from 8-8:30 p.m. EST. Jackie also hosted a nationally syndicated radio talk show, and with his friend and collaborator, Raoul Lionel Felder, hosted both the weekly PBS talk television series “Crossing the Line” and the BBC radio show “The Mason-Felder Report.”
The duo also coauthored two books, “Jackie Mason and Raoul Felder’s Guide to New York and Los Angeles Restaurants,” released by Dove Books in 1996, and the 1997 Avon Books release, “The Jackie Mason, Raoul Felder Survival Guide to New York.”
Jackie also writes for the Jewish Press and collaborates with Raoul Felder on a bi-monthly column in the Internet edition of “The American Spectator” and a political column for the “Washington Times” that can be viewed at http://www.jewishworldreview.com.
Well known and beloved around the world, Jackie Mason has been honored by many, including South African President Nelson Mandela, former Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, and the United Kingdom’s Oxford University.
Jackie Mason calls New York home, but he lives on the road entertaining his many loyal long-time fans and the legions of new fans he earns each year.
