Jackie Mason's goodbye tour

    Comedian Jackie Mason is to make his last ever live tour of the UK in 2012.

    Jackie Mason first appeared in the JC in 1963 when he did a charity gig for the Manchester Jewish Benevolent Society with Helen Shapiro.

    (Ironically so, since Shapiro became a Messianic Jew, while Mason once sued Jews for Jesus for using his image in an ad campaign, having protested that he was "as Jewish as a matzah ball".)

    Since then the New York stand-up has gone on to greater things, notching up eight Royal Command performances here, more than any other American entertainer.

    Now at the age of 75, he has announced he will be making his last live tour of the UK with a five-week season at the West End's Wyndham's Theatre from mid-February.
