    Default Jackie Mason

    Jackie Mason, the crusty, self-doubting, enduring comedian who was anointed into pop culture by "The Simpsons," has died.

    Jackie passed Saturday at Mount Sinai Hospital in NYC. His longtime friend Raoul Felder, tells TMZ ... Jackie had been hospitalized for more than 3 weeks ... admitted with inflammation of the lungs. He had been experiencing a number of health issues over the last few years.

    Mason's comedy career spans 60 years, with some huge successes along with some pretty big bumps along the way.

    His big break came in 1960, when he appeared on "The Steve Allen Show" and killed. That led to huge bookings at various clubs and regular TV appearances, including "The Ed Sullivan Show" where he appeared 12 times ... and then, disaster struck. In 1964, Mason was on Sullivan's live show but it was partially preempted by a speech by then-President Lyndon Johnson. When regular programming resumed, Mason was mid-way through his act and Sullivan was already counting him down with his finger "1 minute to go." Mason responded by looking at audience members, saying "Here's a finger for you, here's a finger for you" ... and so on.

    He was damaged goods after that for years ... club owners felt he was "crude and unpredictable." Mason said, "It took 20 years to overcome what happened in that 1 minute."

    And, there was more ... in a 1966 Vegas show, Mason mocked Frank Sinatra's marriage to young Mia Farrow -- "Frank soaks his dentures and Mia brushes her braces." As the story goes ... a gunman pumped a bullet into Mason's hotel room.

    Mason's comedy was sometimes hilarious ... especially when he groused about his self-doubt. He joked, "When I attended a football game, every time the players went into a huddle, I thought they were talking about me."

    His biggest success came in 1986, with his one-man show "The World According to Me!" ... which ran on Broadway for 2 years and earned him a Tony and an Emmy for HBO's take on the show.

    The title of his autobiography underscores his Jewish humor -- "Jackie, Oy!"

    Mason was the voice of Rabbi Hyman Krustofsky, Krusty the Clown's dad, on "The Simpsons."

    At the time of his death, Mason was surrounded by his wife, Jyll, and friend, Felder.

    He was 93.

    RIP

    Jackie Mason will be missed more than ever in light of the way doctors are a big part of the coronavirus scam —— you still have to wear a mask when you go to a doctor’s office:




    Parenthetically, Jackie Mason was the only Jewish comedian that never made me sick of NY Jewish humor.

    Mason’s take on Hillary is a classic:


    During a radio interview with former WND Jerusalem Bureau Chief Aaron Klein, Mason targeted Hillary Clinton, slamming her as the "biggest faker in the whole history of politics. And how she became such a hot candidate for president makes as much sense to me as Al Capone becoming the biggest crime fighter in America."

    Hillary Clinton

    Referring to her as "this yenta," Mason said Mrs. Clinton "made her whole life stealing money from everybody everywhere in the world. The fact alone that she is still a free person out of jail is unbelievable."

    He continued: "Every single day they are caught with money they never even knew they had. Imagine that every time you make money you never find out about it? How do you make all that money that you don't find out about? They send you money for nothing and somehow you didn't even ask for it, you never worked for it, you never heard about it and all the sudden it's in your pocket. You don't know how it got there."

    On Hillary's pantsuits: "Almost every day she is wearing a different kind of a pants outfit. You never see her legs. Nobody knows if she has any legs. Where does she put her legs. Because her legs are always camouflaged with a different kind of a shmata that is banging to the floor. It's a different kind of a pantsuit every day."

    "You know why she only wears pantsuits?" asked Mason.

    "Because ... from the people who gave the money to the Foundation are all pants manufacturers. All the pants manufacturers told her that if she wears pantsuits for the rest of her life, she gets $300 million every two weeks so she can walk around with a pair of pants. If she got the money from skirt manufacturers, she would only be wearing skirts. If she got all her money from pajama manufacturers, every time you see her she would only be wearing pajamas."
