So Jackie Masons in town for a string of performances at the Improv Paradise Live (5700 Seminole Way, Hollywood). Humor aside, itll be an interesting study in demographics. On one hand, youve got a Jewish comedy legend bringing his old-school humor to Broward County, home to many a transplanted New Yorker. But on Masons other hand is an outstretched middle finger aimed at President Obama something thatll attract an entirely different crowd, one more enthrall to Glenn Beck than Jon Stewart. Sociologically fascinating? Perhaps. Bust-a-gut funny? Eh, its doubtful. For a sneak peak, check out Mason at youtube.com/theultimatejew. And remember: Sarah Silverman, bad; Sarah Palin, good. Mason performs at 7 p.m. Thursday through Tuesday of this week. Tickets cost $47.70 with a two-drink minimum. Thursdays show is for age 18 and up. After that, its 21 and up only.
