    Jackie Mason, one of the greatest stand-up comics of all time, will play three shows at London's Adelphi Theatre on the 1st, 2nd and 3rd of June 2015, following a 15-week tour of the US.

    Coming on the heels of the UK's general election, Mason's brand new show 'Ready To Rumble' will be an evening of his trademark pungent satire, and brilliant observation, with a particular eye for the Anglo-American political scene, pop culture and current events. His latest targets include 50 Shades of Grey, the Kardashians, President Obama and Syria, the Milliband brothers, Madonna and the Apple Watch.

    Mason's last show  ‘Fearless’ played to sell-out crowds at the Wyndhams's Theatre. It was due to be his farewell UK show, but Mason says "At my age I'm supposed to have passed away a year and a half ago already, but since I'm still here I need to keep busy."

    During his career he has performed regularly in London, including at the Royal Albert Hall, the Dominion, the Royal Festival Hall, the London Palladium, the Royal Opera House, Theatre Royal Drury Lane and his record-breaking run at the Playhouse Theatre.

    Beloved around the world, Jackie Mason has been honoured by many including South African President Nelson Mandela, Oxford University, and scores of other organizations. With eight Royal Command Performances for Queen Elizabeth II, Mason has had the honour more than any other American entertainer, and is the only American to have hosted the show.

    From his humble comic beginnings in New York’s ‘Borscht Belt’, Mason has gone on to hold the record for the longest-running one-man show in Broadway history and the longest-running stand-up show in the history of the West End. Not counting his TV appearances, Mason has been seen live by over 7 million people and in the process has won a Tony, the Outer Critics Circle Award, the Ace, an Emmy Award in addition to a Grammy nomination.
