Jackie Mason is a Video Blogger? Who knew?
For a while Howard Stern called Jackie Mason the greatest stand-up comedian ever, but he eventually had to include Jerry Seinfeld and Chris Rock.
In a valiant effort to flush his credibility down the drain, Mason has produced dozens of video blogs that he has uploaded on YouTube under the username TheUltimateJew. When he isn't rattling on while on a treadmill, owning every bit of the old man that he's become, he attacks Keith Olbermann and Michael Moore and Rosie O'Donnell in short, horribly produced vignettes in and around his nice home.
The main problem isn't the content, it's the production. We expect old men to devolve into kooks, but we don't expect the audio levels to be grossly uneven after 25 segments. Is Jackie deaf? Do his assistants secretly hate him?
The cheesy intro is loud, then Jackie's bit is way too quiet, and then the outro blasts you out of the room.
And what's with shooting him from way across the room? Is his skin that bad?
Regardless, we love the old guy and happily share with you this, Jackie's latest video blog, about how wives who refuse sex to their husbands should be thrown in jail.
