The International Al Jolson Society

The World's Greatest Entertainer

The official website for the International Al Jolson Society 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!"
