In the honored theatrical tradition of one man shows such as Hal Holbrook in Mark Twain Tonight!, James Whitmore in Will Rogers, USA, and Frank Gorshin in Say Goodnight, Gracie, comes Brad Zinn’s The Great Comedians, Those Felt Hat and Big Cigar Funny Men. Brad Zinn’s The Great Comedians is a heartfelt salute to his childhood heroes that includes generous portions of comedy, music, juggling, magic, rope spinning, audience participation, and extended impersonations of Johnny Carson, George Burns, Jack Benny, and Will Rogers. Brad’s impressions also include W. C. Fields, Groucho Marx, Jimmy Durante, George Jessel, Fred Allen, and Red Skelton.
The Great Comedians celebrates the diversity of American pop culture humor of the 20th Century. The show bridges generations with hilarity and clean, timeless laughs. The presentation makes a powerful emotional connection with those who remember, while delivering a thought provoking and thoroughly entertaining theatrical experience for everyone, regardless of age. (Rated PG-14)
The Great Comedians is best received by a multigenerational audience, and parents and grandparents alike are encouraged to “bring a teenager!” As seen worldwide at The London Palladium, Red Skelton Performing Arts Center, Cruise Ships, and all across North America, there is simply no other one man show like this.
