Although it's been nearly twenty years since the initial release of "The World According To Me," Jackie's observations and storytelling style are as fresh as ever. Biting without ever being profane, in the age of Howard Stern, Jackie presents an irrefutable case for the ability of many Jewish comics to make incredibly revealing and hard-hitting without reaching downward to include profanity like Lenny Bruce, who obviously was an influence on Jackie. Similar to Mort Sahl, Jackie takes on all kinds of political subjects and fits them all under his 'Jew with a view' persona. When talking about Nixon's bout with phlebitis (check spelling here,) Jackie says, "You don't screw 200 million people and end up with syphilis!" Jackie tackles the Reagan era with equal deftness, "The country is going down the toilet and he's riding horses and eating jellybeans."
