Laugh with Clem Kadiddlehopper, giggle with seagulls Gertrude and Heathcliffe and feel the love of Freddie the Freeloader, a hobo who lives in the city dump, as comedian Brian Hoffman presents "Remembering Red - A Tribute to Red Skelton" at the Brooklyn Opera House on Sunday, Nov. 7 at 1 p.m.
This family-friendly show is a hit for all ages.
Between 1937 and 1971, Skelton, a comic genius, created many famous characters and was called "America's favorite clown." He hosted The Red Skelton Show on television from 1951 to 1971.
“We are excited to welcome this childhood classic to the Brooklyn Opera House,” said Laura Manatt, General Manager. “The show will help expose a new generation to Red’s humor and bring new life to all his characters.”
Hoffman looks, moves and sounds like Skelton, according to those who have seen his show. It is a family friendly clean comedy for all ages and is the only tribute endorsed by the Skelton Estate.
In Variety, it was stated in a review of the show, "Mr. Hoffman's tribute reminds us that Red's clean humor and love of country should still have a place in today's world."
"Brian's tribute to Red is a must-see for those that watched the Red Skelton Show on TV. It's sweet family humor and sadly missed," wrote a reviewer in the Las Vegas Review Journal.
