Jackie Mason - Schmucks! (Audiobook) 2007

Jackie Mason
Yacov Moshe Maza

Jun 09 1936 -

Jackie Mason is a comedian I like very much. I enjoy his point of view, the way he delivers his material, and the fact that he is willing to base his humor on what he actually thinks about the world rather than adopting something he things the audience wants to buy. That he was actually a rabbi (briefly) at one time shows through and I think to the benefit of the humor and his audience.

This book is done with Raoul Felder and they go through popular culture, politics, social issues, daily life, and the world to take on those people, policies, and customs that are schmucks (they explain exactly what the word means in the introduction - it is not a compliment). They take on Tom Cruise, Al Sharpton, Madonna, the French, Waiters, Starbucks, Mark Cuban, and dozens of others.
None of the articles are very long and all have a sharpened point. The humor is delivered in the twist of the accusation and explanation of why they are indeed schmucks. For example, they ask of the French: "Are the French a nation of lowlifes? Has glory faded from this once-major player on the world's stage? Do they continue to be, in the words of the great philosopher Bart Simpson, "cheese-eating surrender monkeys"? In a word: Oui."
Do you like this kind of humor? Yes? Well, then this book is for you (it was for me)! ~amazon
