702 Punchlines and Pregnant - a review

This show, Sheba Mason’s account of her mother’s fling with stand up comedian Jackie Mason, received excellent reviews on various websites, which leads me to believe that members of the family and friends, or old timers nostalgic for the borscht belt, must be posting on their behalf.

Having already consumed two hours of my life that I will never get back, I cannot bring myself to waste any more time writing a review of a production that looks like an amateur recital put on by the rotary club at a senior center (I mean this quite literally, as the audience was composed almost entirely of retirees, some with walkers, and others leaning on their adult children.

To get your dose of Jackie Mason, I suggest going on to Youtube.
