Krusty the Clown, of “The Simpsons” fame, had a belated Bar Mitzvah. On an episode of the popular cartoon show, which aired Sunday on Fox, Krusty learns that he is not on the Jewish Walk of Fame because he has not had a Bar Mitzvah. To rectify the problem, Krusty reads from the Torah under the tutelage of his father, a rabbi played by the voice of comedian Jackie Mason.
