Jackie Mason announces UK gigs

Three years after the 'farewell' shows

Jackie Mason has announced three London dates – three years after saying he would never be back.

The comic will perform three nights at the Adelphi Theatre on June 1,2 and 3.

On his decision to return after saying he was getting too old to tour, the 83-year-old said: ‘At my age I'm supposed to have passed away a year and a half ago already, but since I'm still here I need to keep busy.’

He will bring this show to London after 15 weeks on the road in the US.

Producers promise ‘an evening of his trademark pungent satire’ with targets including 50 Shades of Grey, the Kardashians, President Obama and Syria, the Milliband brothers, Madonna and the Apple Watch.

Tickets go on sale from 9am on Friday.
