Jackie Mason's One-Man Show, 'No Holds Barred', To Play Los Angeles' Wadsworth Theatre

American stand-up comedian and Tony Award winner, Jackie Mason, will bring his new one-man comedy show, ‘No Holds Barred', to Los Angeles' Wadsworth Theatre from January 20-24. The show is the comedian's eight and final solo outing, and promises to entertain in true Mason style; with sharp and edgy commentary on current events and politics.

Jackie Mason is considered to be one of the greatest stand-up comedians of all-time. Mason grew up in New York City, and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree from the City College of New York. At the age of 25, Mason followed in his father and brothers' footsteps and was ordained as a rabbi. Three years later he resigned to become a comedian and went on to become a featured guest on the ‘Ed Sullivan Show' in the early 1960's.

Mason is widely known for his one-man shows; 'The World According to Me' ran on Broadway from 1986-1988, garnering triumphant reviews. The show earned him a Tony Award, an Outer Critics Circle Award, an Ace Award, an Emmy Award, and a Grammy nomination. The production also toured successfully in America and Europe for two years.

Mason returned to Broadway in 1990 with 'Jackie Mason: Brand New'; in 1994 with 'Jackie Mason: Politically Incorrect'; in 1996 with 'Love Thy Neighbor'; in 1999 with 'Much Ado about Everything'; and in 2002 with 'Prune Danish.'

Mason received an Emmy and an Ace award for the HBO special, 'Jackie Mason on Broadway.'

In a 2005 poll aimed at finding the quintessential "Comedian's Comedian", Mason was voted among the top-50 comedy acts by fellow comedians. He was also ranked #63 in 'Comedy Central Presents: 100 Greatest Stand-Ups of All Time.'
