Comedy Classics: Jackie Mason on Jews at Restaurants


Are you making restaurant reservations this week? Be sure you get the treatment you're entitled to: the best table in the house, away from drafts, food at just the right temperature, doneness, quantity, consistency, and presentation. That's what happens when a Jew walks into a restaurant, according to comedian Jackie Mason. 

Here's a classic comedy excerpt from his 1986 Broadway show, The World According to Me, about differences between Jews and Gentiles in gyms and in restaurants.

According to Mason, you'll never see a Jew in a bar, unless he got lost looking for a piece of cake and a cup of coffee.  Enjoy!
