Legendary comic Jackie Mason's 10 year love affair with a teacher/belly-dancer is told by their lovechild comedian Sheba Mason. More…
It begins at the bustling Rascal House delicatessen in Miami Beach, 1977. Jackie Mason spots Ginger sitting with her mother, Mrs. Olivier and sends his lackey over to her table. The audience becomes privy to Jackie’s womanizing ways: whenever Jackie returns to Florida for winter shows, he beguiles Ginger with his love but warns her that he is not in the market for marriage. When Ginger becomes pregnant (with Sheba) Jackie battles with his denial of paternity.
