Mason rose to fame in the 1960s thanks to regular spots on The Ed Sullivan Show, but fell from grace when he allegedly gave the host ‘the finger’ during a live broadcast.
His career eventually recovered thanks to his solo shows, including The World According to Me, which won a Tony Award when it transferred to Broadway in the mid 1980s.
Subsequent shows have included Jackie Mason: Brand New, Love Thy Neighbor, Much Ado about Everything A Night at the Opera (at the Royal Opera House) and The Ultimate Jew.
