Jackie Mason, RIP

New York City — Jackie Mason, whose staccato, arm-waving delivery and thick Yiddish accent kept the borscht belt style of comedy alive long after the Catskills resorts had shut their doors, and whose career reached new heights in the 1980s with a series of one-man shows on Broadway, died at a hospital here July 24. He was 93.

He was also the inspiration for the “Jackie Mason jar,” an invention demonstrated in episode 320- THE UNEARTHLY.

The New York Times has the story.

    His father was a rabbi. He was a rabbi. Some in his audience think he should have stayed a rabbi. (Rimshot, please) RIP

    I was gonna say, he was also Krusty’s dad.
    RIP. Maybe they can preserve his head on Broadway?

    I used to think that he voiced the aardvark from the Ant and the Aardvark cartoons, but it was John Byner doing an imitation of him.

    He was also mentioned in 607 – Bloodlust. The bots point out that one of the “boiled heads” looks like him.
