Energetic and feisty, Mason entertained audiences with a mix of social commentary, often about being Jewish, biting humor about relationships and witty self-deprecation about his own insecurities.

Jackie Mason, a rabbi who became a Tony-award winning comedian and dominated stage and screen for decades with irascible humor and biting social commentary, died Saturday night at the age of 93.

 

The comedian passed away around at 6 p.m. ET at Mt. Sinai Hospital in Manhattan after a brief illness, his lawyer Raoul Felder told The Associated Press.

Energetic and feisty, Mason entertained audiences with a mix of social commentary, often about being Jewish, biting humor about relationships and witty self-deprecation about his own insecurities.

“I was so self-conscious, every time football players went into a huddle; I thought they were talking about me,” he once quipped.

As for men and women, he once said that "80% of married men cheat in America. The rest cheat in Europe.”
