Retro Mondays A Blast from the Past
Years ago, families use to gather together in one room of the house and watch television together. One of the shows families watched was the Red Skelton Show. Today you can find Red Skelton Impersonator Brian Hoffman performing LIVE in Las Vegas, Mon
January 1, 2010 (Newswire.com) - It's official. Signed, sealed and delivering more laughs on a Monday than thought possible. Where should a person be on Monday's at 2pm in Las Vegas? Inside the showroom at the Royal Resort Hotel in Las Vegas located at 99 Convention Center Drive.
WHERE'S That!???...One might ask,...in fact most people do, even the cab drivers!
The Royal Resort Hotel can be seen from over half the rooms in the Encore and Riviera.
That's because it's a 6 story hotel that sits on Convention Center Drive, almost at the corner of Las Vegas Blvd in between the Encore/Wynn and Riviera.
Starting Monday Feb 1st at 2pm, with shows scheduled for every Monday after that in 2010, Brian Hoffman brings to life Red Skelton and his characters including, but not limited to, the loveable hobo, Freddie the Freeloader.
From 1951 to 1971, The Red Skelton Show was being watched by more families than a person could imagine. Red's kind heart shown through the televisions and into America's living room with the whole family sitting around the one and only TV set in the entire house.
The show had good wholesome entertainment, with David Rose and his orchestra watching Red's every move, so they could add the sound effects as he performed a pantomime. The funniest would be when Red would throw them off guard on purpose so the sound effect didn't quite match the action.
The same holds true in Brian Hoffman's Remembering Red - A Tribute to Red Skelton.
This 90 minute laugh packed afternoon will bring back memories that will be cherished forever. Brian takes the stage and endears the audience in the same fashion Red did.
The show includes several jokes with those two seagulls, Gertrude and Heathcliffe,
some of which has been updated to today's celebrities, but the punchline remains the same. Have a couple of glasses of "Guzzlers Gin" and laugh your head off as Clem Kadiddlehopper fills you in on what he has been doing lately.
The show wouldn't be complete with out a friendly hello from Freddie the Freeloader as he closes the show with a farewell song.
