Jackie Mason - Laughing Room Only#0

I had the unfortunate experience of seeing this show in it's pre-Broadway run a few days ago. All I can say is whomever is responsible for allowing this show to play on Broadway should receive a lifetime ban. I have seen a lot of stinkers in my time, but none is as completely worthless from beginning to end as this one. A complete waste of two hours.

WE SAW IT OPENING NIGHT IN NYACK AND AGREE THAT IT WAS A WASTE OF TIME AND MONEY. IT WAS TASTELESS AND THE MATERIAL WAS OLD AS THE HILLS. THE AUDIENCE EMPTIED OUT AFTER THE FIRST ACT AND OTYHER ASKED FOR REFUNDS. I POSTED A MESSAGE REGARDING THIS.

IF HE HAS 1/2 A BRAIN, HE WILL GO BACK TO BEING "JACKIE MASON".

Unfortunately for Jackie, his last show was a bomb so he decided to try something new. This will be a miserable failure. If he is wise he will close it before Broadway as he has barely sold any tickets anyway. Can he use the excuse that John Rando's mother died?

It is like the sex comedies of London right? The ones that are huge hits there and total boring flops here.

In addition to his bad material, I think Jackie Mason should stop coloring his hair. I don't, so why should he? Perhaps that dye has seeped into his brain!

Here is a scary thought. Jackie Mason & Joe Franklin rambling on & on on stage . The opening night party could be in Howard Johnson's ( whose bathroom has not been cleaned since FDR) or Joe Franklins restaurant ( that is always empty)
