Filmmaker Barry Avrich's (The Last Mogul: Life and Times of Lew Wasserman) documentary record of Jackie Mason's "farewell" 2008 New York show.
The controversial comedian, who comes from a long line of rabbis, is known for taking borscht belt style humour to politically incorrect extremes -- pushing the boundaries with impeccable timing and aggressive, stand-up delivery. Mason's one-man comedy show took Broadway by storm years ago.
Here, he takes on contemporary issues, with bits on Elliot Spitzer, Barack Obama and other political figures.
