Brian Hoffman Tribute To Comedian Red Skelton Is Saturday, July 24

At 7 p.m. on Saturday, July 24, 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” on the Deane Center’s Coolidge Theatre stage at 104 Main Street in Wellsboro.

While people are coming into the theatre at Wellsboro, Hoffman will run video and slides of 1950s and 60s TV and radio celebrities, old cars and TV commercials to bring back wonderful memories for baby boomers.

Hoffman looks, moves and sounds like the late, great Skelton, according to those who have seen his show. It is 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.

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.

Admission is $25. For tickets or information, call (570) 724-6220 or visit www.deanecenter.com.
