The Farewell Performances

When he was a young comic, the William Morris Agency begged Jackie Mason to take elocution lessons to lose his Lower East Side Jewish accent. He refused, saying, "Hak mir nisht keyn tshaynik!" — which means he's Jewlicious and proud. Mr. Mason performs Jackie Mason: The Ultimate Jew The Farewell Performances. March 5-8, 8 p.m.; Sun., March 9, 3 p.m., 2008
