Jackie Mason performing in Israel
He’s 82 now, but the jokes never age, and Jackie Mason seems like he’s just getting started. A comedian’s comedian who was ranked No. 63 in Comedy Central’s list of 100 Greatest Standups of All Time, Jackie’s instantly familiar voice and shticky shtick has stuck to the funny bones of millions since the former rabbi found his true comedy calling in the early ’60s. He’s conquered New York, the Borscht Belt, and just about every existing comedy club. Twenty years after stirring up controversy with an upturned digit on The Ed Sullivan Show in 1964, he earned a Tony Award and an Emmy Award for his one-man Broadway show, The World According to Me. He’s given his voice to Krusty the Clown’s estranged father, Rabbi Hyman Krustofsky, on The Simpsons and treated the digital age to his sharp wit on The Ultimate Jew video blog. Back on the road, the lovable mensch fills the NYCB Theatre with boisterous laughs as he riffs on the foibles of modern times with his inimitable voice and whiplash delivery.
NYCB Theatre at Westbury
More than half a century ago, three partners raised a vibrant, multicolored tent on an underdeveloped industrial site and established the Westbury Music Fair. It followed its first production, The King and I, with a decade of top-name talent and Broadway musicals. Then, recognizing its place on the theater scene was permanent, it planted its roots as a fully enclosed theater-in-the-round. Expanding its repertoire to match its new digs, the theater showcased performers such as The Who, Bruce Springsteen, and Julie Andrews. Today, past a lounge blazing in purple and red lights, guests find that same circular stage hosting equally great musical acts and musical theater.
