Jackie Mason is truly one of the elder statesmen of stand-up comedy. The self-proclaimed "Ultimate Jew" has been around the block and then some, performing steadily for over five decades and appearing on everything from "The Ed Sullivan Show" to "The Simpsons." In his hilarious farewell show, the veteran comedian does what he's always done best: riffing on politics and pop culture with irascible wit.
