Jackie Mason: Prude Danish

The robo-comic’s sixth one-man show proves that while his Catskills cadences are still amusing, his material has become a real ba-dum-bummer. He opens with banal observations about the absurdities of neckties, skiing, and fat-free foods. His ”topical” humor is even staler: moldy zingers about Bill Clinton (He lies! And chases skirts!), Yasser Arafat (calling him ”the man with a dishtowel on his head” isn’t just offensive — it’s lazy), and airport security (the post-Sept. 11 equivalent of airline-food jokes). Plus, his endless one-liners about the differences between Jews and Gentiles feel about as fresh as New York vs. L.A. gags. In a word, oy.
