Once in a generation, a performer emerges who is so extraordinary, so brilliant, that he or she becomes the standard to whom all others are compared. Jackie Mason is such a performer, and is widely regarded as one of the greatest stand-up comics of all time. Now more popular than ever, Mason combines pungent political satire, insightful observations on the foibles of modern life and impeccable timing to create material that leaves audiences laughing until they cry and critics raving show after show.
"The World According to Me" began its unprecedented two and a half year run on Broadway in December 1986 winning triumphant reviews and reestablishing Mason as one of the nation's premier comics.
The show earned Jackie Mason a Tony Award, an Outer Critics Circle Award, an Ace Award, an Emmy Award, and a Grammy nomination, and it toured successfully in America and Europe for two years.
Mason 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.
The legendary voice of Jackie Mason is now being broadcast from Broadway on his Nationally Syndicated Radio show on www.talkradionetwork.com.
The same gutsy, "no holds barred" delivery that won him Tony and Emmy Awards can now be heard every Sunday night from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.
