Enjoy a front row seat at the comedy event of the year as Jackie Mason, the undisputed king of stand-up comedy, entertains a capacity audience in the stunning surroundings of the Royal Opera House, London.
The first comedian ever to be given the honour of playing in this distinguished venue, Jackie Mason brings the house down with an hour and a half of his own, inimitable observations on life. From elderly Jews on cruise liners to sushi-eating trendies, from Titanic the Musical to Yasser Arafat`s personal hygiene, nothing and no-one is safe from Jackie`s keen eye and rapier wit.
If you are French by nationality, or believe that Tony Blair is unambitious and George Bush is competent, then you may find Jackie`s act grossly offensive. Otherwise sit back and be prepared to be gloriously entertained by a true master of comedy...
The career of Jackie Mason has experienced some wildly fluctuating ups and downs. His initial exposure to the American public in the 1960s found him scaling some heady comedic peaks as he entranced the nation with his off-the-cuff humor. His vibrant routines frequently brightened up THE ED SULLIVAN SHOW, and he became a popular staple of the show for a lengthy period. But an enforced hiatus from the entertainment industry saw his career hit the skids for the following couple of decades, until Mason found his feet again at the tail end of the 1980s. This show perfectly demonstrates all his comedic talents, and was shot at the Royal Opera House in London.
