MAR. 5-9: JACKIE MASON: THE ULTIMATE JEW – The Farewell Performances at the Wadsworth Theatre

The reigning king of one-man shows on the Broadway stage, Jackie Mason brings his farewell tour to Los Angeles for the last stop prior to opening in New York. It's Jackie's 9th one-man comedy tour de force, entitled JACKIE MASON: THE ULTIMATE JEW – The Farewell Performances. This week, West LA's wonderful Wadsworth will be the epicenter of Jewish humor as mirthmaker Mason's monologue makes March merry for 5 performances only.

About JACKIE MASON: THE ULTIMATE JEW - The Farewell Performances

Jackie will once again be skewering public figures and interpreting current events with his unique brand of side-splitting hilarity. If it's in the news, it's in the show. "I am excited about getting back to what I do best and what my audience likes best," said Mason. "I am writing new jokes every day and soon I'll be telling them every night. Just me ... one Jew talking and that's it."

Sounds like Mr. Mason's new show could have been subtitled The Return of the King of Comedy. The show runs March 5 - 9, 2008. Running Time: 90 Minutes. Parental Advisory: for mature audiences.
