All these great humorists and more, will be featured in an evening event aiming to bring back some of the nostalgic memories of your favorite comedians along with musical skits associated with them.
“Comedians, especially those from what is referred to as the Golden Age of Comedy, played an invaluable role in helping Americans endure the Great Depression and two world wars,” said Lenny. “In the 1950s and 60s, the next generation of comedians helped us confront a tidal wave of societal change. All of the great comedians serve as the roots and branches on the comedy tree. They make us laugh; they entertain us; they make us think.”
Lenny will be accompanied on the piano by Bob Vogel. Vogel has entertained audiences nationally for decades with his musical skills, wit and warmth. Together, Lenny and Bob take great pride in presenting an evening of nostalgia and comedy.
Despite similiarities in names, Dave has little in common with Lenny Bruce. This show will be filled with good, clean fun.
“We are excited to bring 100 Years of Comedy! to the Cultural Center,” said Phyllis Korab, Cultural Affairs Director. “Lenny has garnered rave reviews from critics and fans nationwide, and we look forward to bringing this night of laughter and memories to Pompano Beach.”
Pompano Beach Cultural Center is located at 50 W. Atlantic Blvd., Pompano Beach, FL 33060.
