An amazing trilogy on DVD - Jackie Mason: An Equal Opportunity Offender is a great documentary on Jackie and his resurgence, while Jackie on Campus and Jackie in Israel show him to be a timely, worldly entertainer. "In Israel" particularly shows how political and current Jackie can be when he drops the shtick. Today's comics can't compare to this genius -- buy this DVD now!

If you are a Jackie Mason fan this a particularly attractive album. The CD really contains three complete presentations. The first is an excellent documentary telling the story of Jackie's meteoric rise and fall...both at the hands of a malevolent narcissistic Ed Sullivan. More gratifying is his amazing return after presenting a one man show in Hollywood thirty years after the "demise" of his first career. Then there are appearances in London and Israel. Both display his remarkable acerbic wit as well as his mastery of current events as well as that hilarious talent as a historical revisionist.

The first part of the trilogy, "An Equal Opportunity Offender," includes a biography of Jackie Mason, which is quite interesting, presenting a lot of information about him that I didn't know before. The second part, "In Israel," is a video of his comedy performance in Israel, and it's so funny that I was crying with laughter at several points. In the third part, "On Campus," the comic performs briefly before an audience at Oxford University, then he has a chance to demonstrate his intelligence and quick wit as he fields questions from students. Although this part repeats much of the second part, it's still high quality. One warning: Mr. Mason speaks rapidly with a heavy accent, and the microphone is not always close enough to him, especially in part two, so at times it's difficult to understand what he's saying. But that should not deter anyone from enjoying this DVD.

If you are inclined to get just one Jackie Mason DVD, this would likely be your best choice. It offers the most comprehensive look at Mason and his humor.

The first third of the DVD is a documentary-style biography of the comedian, including snippets from some of his trademark stand-up performances. The biographical sketch shows facets of Mason that even some of his most devoted fans might not have known about before. I knew his first public appearances were as a Rabbi, with his father pressuring him to continue the rabbinical tradition of the family. He has made frequent reference to that Jazz Singer part of his life. Most of his fans also will likely have known about his career-altering misunderstanding with Ed Sullivan.

But I didn't know he also crossed swords with Frank Sinatra. And I was delighted to finally be introduced to his long-term love interest. He has usually shied away from such invasions of his privacy, but here we meet, albeit briefly, the woman responsible for re-popularizing Mason as a theatrical attraction and for being his partner through several turbulent decades. She's an unexpected delight.

The second part of this DVD shows one of Mason's stand-up performances in Israel. He makes a lot of hilarious observations about the differences between Jews and Gentiles. However, this is the one part of the disc that might leave you feeling just a little short-changed. The disc cover advertises that each of its triad of segments is "complete." But this stage performance seems to be cut off at the intermission. Mason announces that it's time for a break, then he makes a few more observations and leaves the stage - and that's the end.

This is a great video, it is wholesome comedy that you can let your children watch without concern of foul language. It is a nice blend of documentary and insight to Jackie's experiences growing up as a child and son of a rabbi, and an interesting path that this mans life has taken, really nice and refreshing to see somebody doing what he "thought" was the right thing to do, and finding what his true purpose was an further going after it and getting it done! Way to go Jackie, you are an inspiration to me and I appreciate this well done DVD, blessings!
