Why is Jackie Mason beloved like Betty White?

He is one of the older comedians still alive and yet no one talks about him like they do Betty White or Don Rickles for that matter?

You mean "why isn't Jackie Mason beloved," OP. Well, I can tell you that as a Jew, I regard Jackie Mason as the only legitimate justification of anti-Semitism. Cloaking himself in his religion, pretending that that's the reason that people hate him, he's a racist, sexist pig, who is as revolting in his personal life as he is on stage.

Don't Jews have their own forums?

Cause he's not funny.

He had a brief period when he was beloved, when he had that comeback show in the late 80s in NYC. But he was only popular among other New York Jews. No one else could stand him.

He's beloved as the voice of Krusty the Clown's father on "The Simpsons."

jackie's shunning his daughter has made him even unpopular with the religious jews- he is viewed as a bad father and a bad person

Wife lives in same building, but not same apartment, so that Jackie can have his girlfriends traipse in and out. Such a pig.

He's butt ugly and not funny in the least.

stop it with the stupid beloved threads. They're dumb

by Anonymousreply 1002/21/2013

B/c he's ugly on a disturbing level?

by Anonymousreply 1102/21/2013

Racist. Not funny. He ruined a classic by doing Caddyshack II. He is ugly. Die already.

How stupid and lazy do you have to be to type "Why is Jackie Mason beloved like Betty White?" when you meant to type "Why ISN'T Jackie Mason beloved like Betty White?" Could you not spare the five seconds necessary to proofread the title of the thread you started? Idiot.

my deepest apologies r13 on lacking 'isn't' in my title- i hang my head in awe of your perfection ... i can learn a lot from you

I never found him to be funny at all. He always seemed so bitter and dry. His jokes always seemed old fashioned and outdated. He was never an innovator.

by Anonymousreply 1502/22/2013

Not lovable, old people are supposed to be lovable. Even if it is an act, its very convincing.

Jackie Mason is one step away from EGOT

He has a Grammy, Emmy and Tony Award

by Anonymousreply 1702/22/2013

He seems to have turned into a woman.

by Anonymousreply 1802/22/2013

R18, that's a terrible thing to say about women.

OP, I realize that you were trying to be ironic at R14, but it seems to me that you can learn a lot from almost anybody.

I didn't know he was still living. But back to the original mistyped question, he wasn't funny.

by Anonymousreply 2002/22/2013

Girlfriends? Who the hell would fuck him? He's fugly.

by Anonymousreply 2102/22/2013

He should have let his hair go gray back in the '70s. His dye-job was/is awful. That's the main reason I couldn't stand the sight of him.

by Anonymousreply 2202/22/2013

you should ask mario cantone about his stories about working with him in the movie that jackie produced and paid for that never saw the light of day

by Anonymousreply 2302/22/2013

R1 has it.

Racist and sexist asshole.

Didn't he say some really nasty things about Obama?

by Anonymousreply 2402/22/2013

I would guess because his brand of humor (if that's what you want to call it) appealed only to a very very very VERY small segment of the population.

by Anonymousreply 2502/22/2013

yes r26- he called obama the s word

by Anonymousreply 2602/22/2013

Don Rickles was fucking hilarious.

Betty White is very funny.

Jackie Mason was a bore!

by Anonymousreply 2702/22/2013

OP/R18, please also end your sentences with a period. Your illiteracy embarrasses all of us.

by Anonymousreply 2802/22/2013

R28 You are most certainly retarded.

by Anonymousreply 2902/22/2013

OP, I'm not perfect. But neither am I so stupid, careless, and/or lazy that I would begin a thread with a title that said the EXACT OPPOSITE of what I intended it to say, just because I couldn't spend five seconds proofreading it.

This aside from the fact that your comparison of Jackie Mason and Betty White, performers from entirely different universes in terms of style, personality, material, etc., was idiotic and pointless to begin with.

by Anonymousreply 3002/22/2013

Isn't he the one who got banned from TV for shooting the finger on a live cast of the Ed Sullivan Show? Yeah, I'm talking about way back then.

by Anonymousreply 3102/22/2013

Also his voice is awful.

by Anonymousreply 3202/22/2013

His wife, Portia, was almost equally revolting.

by Anonymousreply 3302/22/2013

r17 said that he is one step away from winning an EGOT- and looking on-line, it looks like his own management makes it seem that he has won a grammy award- but he has never one a grammy- he was nominated, but he has never won a grammy- he is lying about it- why doesn't anyone call him out on this?
