It's been 24 years since Ginger Reiter gave birth to Jackie Mason's love child, Sheba Mason -- but the comic still hasn't warmed up to his daughter. "When he sees me in the street, he actually recognizes me," the petite brunette told Page Six. "I know he recognizes me because he runs in the other direction." Sheba has written a musical comedy, "702Punchlines & Pregnant," about the love affair between Jackie and "my starry-eyed mother." Asked about the three-digit number, Sheba said, "That's about how many times she saw him. According to my mother, they had a passionate affair for 10 years. According to my father, they once played spin the bottle." Sheba also jokes "What do you get when you don't use protection? . . . You get a little comedienne." The show -- with numbers like "I Never Met This Yenta" -- opens July 6 at the Richard Shepard Theater starring Alex Dunbar as Jackie, and Sheba as her own mother. -Richard Johnson, Page 6 NEW YORK POST NOW AT THE BROADWAY COMEDY CLUB
