Al Jolson - The World's Greatest Entertainer
The World's Greatest Entertainer

This website is dedicated to the man who was known as The World's Greatest Entertainer, a superstar before the word was coined, and whose musical heritage created much of the entertainment industry we know today. With text, photos, music and more, here is the source to learn about Al Jolson, the master showman of American theatre, whose career spanned fifty years of American Music history. If you have never heard Jolson, you are in for a treat, as many of these pages contain excerpts from some of his most popular or memorable songs. As Jolie would have said,
"You ain't heard nothin' yet!"

Al Jolson died after sundown on October 23, 1950, which corresponded to the Hebrew date Cheshvan 13. This year Cheshvan 13 falls on Monday, October 26th. Jolson fans of the Jewish faith are encouraged to honor his memory with the recitation of the Kaddish on this day if possible, and all devotees of the World's Greatest Entertainer can light a memorial candle before sundown on Sunday, October 25th to the memory of the Immortal Al Jolson.

In support of this country and all that it stands for; for those who have lost loved ones because they were Americans; for our friends from other countries who are with us; and those who stand ready to defend this country; here is Al Jolson with words from the past, that still ring true today!
