Of all the stand-up comedians that we've featured on Jewish Humor Central, Jackie Mason has been the most popular. He's been around for a long time, and our last post of his routines was a performance in 1961.
Today's flashback doesn't go that far back, but shows him on stage in 1968.
In this stand-up routine, Mason shines a spotlight on the political process, in a year that saw Richard Nixon defeat Hubert Humphrey for the presidency.
He makes funny comments about Congress, Nixon, and the political process of candidates running by insisting that they're not running for office.
