Throwback Thursday Comedy Special: Standup Comic Jackie Mason in His Prime 52 Years Ago


Stand-up comedian Jackie Mason was back in rare form on The Dean Martin show 52 years ago in 1967, three years after the finger-pointing incident on The Ed Sullivan Show that caused Sullivan to ban him from future appearances.

As is evident from this video clip, Mason had fully recovered his timing and comedic talents, putting on a masterful performance, with commentary on government spending, President Johnson, taxation, his psychiatrist, and a brief reference to the Sullivan incident.

Enjoy this nostalgic look back with the original Jackie Mason.
