Comedy legend Jackie Mason has died at 93. Known for his quick-witted observational humor, he entertained us for decades with stories from his orthodox Jewish background. His family moved to New York City, where he became an ordained rabbi. He broke into comedy in the Catskills in upstate New York in the 1960s and his career started to take off. Jackie enjoyed success in the 1980s with a solo show called "Jackie Mason's The World According to Me!" Other successful one-man shows followed, including "Jackie Mason: Brand New" in 1990-91; "Jackie Mason: Politically Incorrect" in 1994-95; "Love Thy Neighbor" in 1996-97; "Much Ado About Everything" in 1999-2000 and "Jackie Mason: Freshly Squeezed" in 2005. His final show was called "Jackie Mason: The Ultimate Jew." Mason also had a recurring role as the voice of Rabbi Hyman Krustofsky, the father of Krusty the Clown, on "The Simpsons". Jackie was promoting "Much Ado About Everything" when we recorded this interview on CISL/650.
