New York (AP) —Jackie Mason is a rabbi-turned joke star who laughed at the hilarious brand of stand-up comedy, from Catskill nightclubs to West Coast talk shows and Broadway stages.
He was 93 years old. Mason died Saturday in Manhattan, celebrity lawyer Raoul Felder told The Associated Press.
Mason started show business as a social director at a Catskill resort. He was the guy who launched everyone to play Simon Says, quiz games, or shuffleboard.
He also joked. After a season, he was playing the club throughout Catskill for better money.
It eventually took him to the Steve Allen and Ed Sullivan shows.
