Comedy legend Jackie Mason — his farewell UK show

to Wyndham’s Theatre Comedy gig at the Wyndham’s Theatre London. Jackie Mason is back in town with "Fearless" -- his farewell show in the UK. Jackie's politically incorrect and acerbic wit will be aimed at everything from the ecomony and the US presidential race to the Olympics, David Cameron, and his hilarious take on every day life. As Jackie says, "If it's in the news, it's in the show!"
