Jackie Mason biography (bio):
Jackie Mason is an American stand-up comedian. His "politically incorrect" routines and opinionated observations on Jewish and American life have often provoked controversy.
Mason graduated with a Bachelor of Arts from City College of New York and (at the age of 25) was ordained as a rabbi in Latrobe, Pennsylvania. Three years later he resigned the post to become a comedian.
In 1992 , Mason won an Emmy for his voice-over of Rabbi Hyman Krustofski in The Simpsons episode, "Like Father, Like Clown" making him the first guest star to win an Emmy for his role. In a 2005 poll to find The Comedian's Comedian, Mason was voted amongst the top 50 comedy acts ever by fellow comedians and comedy insiders. He was also ranked #63 in Comedy Central's 100 Greatest Stand-Up Comedians.John Byner impersonated Mason for the Aardvark cartoon character in the cartoon series The Ant and the Aardvark.

Career:
Mason had several one-man comedy stage shows over the years. His first Broadway show was called The World According to Me, which was well-received. Later, he had a show at the John Golden Theatre, called Politically Incorrect, which ran into copyright problems as it was performed at the same time that Bill Maher's TV show of the same name was on the air. Mason eventually changed the name of the show to Jackie Mason: Politically Correct to settle the situation. Between these shows, Mason played the lead in a short-lived television show, Chicken Soup.
In November of 2005, Mason started a daily talk show, The Jackie Mason Show. The show airs nightly on the CN8 television network on Comcast cable television. He is currently also the host of a nationally syndicated radio program (as of July 2006).

Controversy:
Mason has been involved in several controversial situations over the course of his career.

Mason/Sullivan:
In 1962, Mason allegedly gave Ed Sullivan the finger on a live telecast of Sullivan's weekly variety show. Sullivan terminated Mason's $45,000.00 contract on the spot. Mason denied that he made the obscene gesture, insisting that he flashed numerous fingers and that the gesture was misinterpreted. He later retaliated against Sullivan by filing (but later dropping) a libel suit. A year and a half later, Mason again appeared on Sullivan's show, where Sullivan publicly apologized to Mason. Mason dropped the lawsuit shortly after. That was Mason's last appearance on Sullivan's show.
A video recording of the incident shows Mason talking through his comedy set and then looking to his right (viewers' left), toward Sullivan, commenting on the fact that Sullivan was giving him finger-signals. Sullivan may have been trying to tell Mason to wrap up his segment; regardless, Mason continued commenting, talking toward Sullivan instead of the audience and thumbed his nose at him with his middle finger slightly separated from the others. The action left Sullivan with the impression that Mason had given him the finger on live TV.
After Mason left the stage, the TV camera then cut to Sullivan, who was looking agitated over what had just transpired; his arms were folded tightly and he was staring downward.

Allegations of racism:
In 1991 , he was criticized by African-American organizations such as the NAACP when he called New York mayor David Dinkins "a fancy schvartze with a moustache". He later apologized. He was later accused of racism when the American comic Ray Hanania, of Palestinian descent, was axed from opening for him at a Chicago club.

Jews for Jesus lawsuit:
On August 28, 2006, Mason filed a lawsuit against the group Jews for Jesus for using his likeness in a pamphlet. His image was used next to the tag line - "Jackie Mason...a Jew for Jesus!?." Mason said in court papers filed in New York:
While I have the utmost respect for people who practice the Christian faith, the fact is, as everyone knows, I am as Jewish as a matzo ball or kosher salami.

Mason has claimed that the group was using his image and fame to gain attention and converts. The group responded to the suit by saying, "Shame on him for getting so upset about this." The lawsuit was recently settled, and Jews for Jesus apologized.

Meyer Lansky:
Jackie Mason has also been linked to organized crime boss, Meyer Lansky. They allegedly became friends in the 1960s while Mason was performing in Miami. Lansky, a sarcastic Jew himself, loved his comedy and frequented his shows. Mason would often join Lansky at his table.

One Jerusalem:
Mason also cofounded the organization One Jerusalem in response to the Oslo peace agreement. Its stated cause is "saving a united Jerusalem as the un-divided capital of Israel."
