Comedian Gilbert Gottfried (Two Shows)

The one and only Gilbert Gottfried will perform two shows at the Newtown Theatre on Saturday, November 2. Shows will start at 6:00 PM and 8:30 PM.

Doors open at 5:00 PM for the 6:00 PM show and at 7:45 PM for the 8:30 PM show.

Beer, wine and concessions will be sold from the time the doors open until the start of the performance.

About Gilbert Gottfried

At the young age of 15, Gilbert Gottfried began doing stand-up at open mike nights in New York City, after a few short years, became known around town as “the comedian’s comedian.” After spending several years mastering the art of stand-up comedy, producers of the legendary NBC late night comedy show Saturday Night Live became aware of Gottfried and, in 1980, hired him as a cast member. It wasn’t until a few years later when his true notoriety would begin when MTV hired him for a series of improvised and hilarious promos for the newly formed channel. This led to several television appearances on “The Cosby Show” and “Late Night with David Letterman.”

Gottfried’s work in television soon led to roles in film. Most notable was his improvised scene as business manager Sidney Bernstein in the hit sequel “Beverly Hills Cop II,” for which the New York Daily News said, “Gilbert Gottfried steals the picture with a single scene.” Aside from his glowing reputation in comedy clubs, Gottfried began to gain a reputation as the king of quirky roles in both movies and television. He appeared in such movies as “Problem Child,” “Problem Child II,” “Look Who’s Talking II” and “The Adventures of Ford Fairlane.” He was also the host of the very popular late night movie series “USA Up All Night.”

After his stellar performance as the wise cracking parrot, IAGO, in the Disney classic “Aladdin,” Gottfried became one of the most recognizable voiceover talents, lending his voice to several commercials, cartoons and movies, including the frustrated duck in the AFLAC Insurance commercials. Gottfried also is the voice of DIGIT in the long running PBS Series “Cyberchase.” His signature voice can also be heard on the Comedy Central series, “The Annoying Orange, the voice of the horse on “Family Guy,” Mr. Mxyzptlk in the new “Lego Batman 3 – Beyond Gotham” video game, and Abraham Lincoln in A Million Ways to Die in the West.

Gottfried has made numerous memorable appearances on Comedy Central Roasts and the Comedy Central series, “The Burn with Jeff Ross.” Gilbert has been a guest on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” “The Late Show with Seth Meyers”, “@Midnight with Chris Hardwick” and numerous appearances on “The Howard Stern Show.” He also has had a recurring role on “Law and Order” SVU as TARU tech Leo Gerber.

As a famed comics comic, Gottfried puts aside political correctness for his live performance and fires an onslaught of jokes that know no boundaries.

"Dr. Dirty" John Valby
Dec
14
8:00 PM20:00

"Dr. Dirty" John Valby

The legendary “Dr. Dirty” John Valby will take to the stage of the historic Newtown Theatre on Saturday, December 14.

Doors open at 7:00 PM and the show starts at 8:00. Beer, wine and concessions will be sold from the time the doors open until the start of the performance.

John Valby 2.jpg

After spending an evening with John Valby, audiences find themselves wanting more and more of him. What makes Valby so unique and entertaining is his uncommon rapport with the audience and his ability to mix his musical talent with a mad-cap variety of "Dirty Ditties".

Few people can resist laughing at songs that would have earned them a mouthful of soap when they were children. Valby's repertoire is composed of popular songs, limericks, classical arrangements and his own original creations. Valby has made a career out of poking fun at his audiences, stretching the limits of free speech, and accepted good taste and satirizing current events from behind the piano.

When he's not playing and singing, he yells obscenities, the audience yells back and everyone has a good time. The best way to describe Valby is to blend the following performers: Allen Sherman, Spike Jones, Lenny Bruce and Weird Al Yankovic, all topped off with the Dirt of Redd Foxx, only better.

Valby attributes his love of music to his father Richard, an accomplished violinist. The "Dirt singing" didn’t start until Valby got to Middlebury College in Vermont. Majoring in philosophy, he created a few compositions for his fraternity brothers, many of which are still sung today as part of his legacy. In fact, Valby's performance status remains legendary at college campuses throughout the country.

As a trained classical pianist, Mr. Valby quickly realized that the demand was limited. He turned to his new material by accident, found a trend and went with it. That trend started in 1975 when Mr. Valby was performing the Buffalo bar circuit doing ragtime tunes and pop standards. According to Mr. Valby, "I did three dirty songs one night and pretty soon the power of "DIRT" pushed most everything else out. I became a mirror for the audience and the audience turned out to be 20 times dirtier than me."

Mr. Valby has recorded & produced over 30 CDs & LPs which bear such titles as Compact Dirt, Sit on a happy face, Give me Dirt or give me death, Operation F Iraq and many other titles that cannot be printed. He has also recorded clean material including a Christmas CD; and the non-Dirty Lily White and burnout Blues. He has worked on a number of other projects; including a multi-era rock'n-roll CD by the Krakup quartet, some new age music, and, believe it or not, a children's album.

Mr. Valby resides in Western New York with his wife Anne and his five children. He continues to be the mainstay at comedy clubs, rock clubs, and college campuses.

We will provide tables, chairs and white linens. You will need to bring a picnic dinner for two (including flatware and glasses), non-alcoholic beverages, desserts, and any decorations you'd like for your spot at the communal table.

How should I dress?
Guests are asked to dress only in black and white clothing. Elegance and creativity are encouraged! Prizes will be awarded for the best dressed folks in attendance.

What's included in the ticket price?
Tickets are sold in pairs for this fundraiser. One $100 ticket admits exactly two people.

You’ll enjoy a festive, glamorous evening of food, mingling, live music, and other entertainment, including a free screening of a black and white classic film starting at 9:00 PM.

What time should I arrive?
Set-up and mingling is from 6:00 to 7:00 PM, and dinner will be held from 7:00-9:00 PM.

Can I reserve seats for my group ahead of time?
You're welcome to buy tickets for up to four couples (eight people) at once.

This does not reserve an individual table for your group, as the Black & White Dinner is comprised of one long communal table. However, you're welcome to save seats next to you if your group plans to arrive separately.

Can I buy a ticket for just one person?
You're welcome to attend with a partner, friend, or group. Upon arrival, each couple is seated at the next open pair of seats. Tickets are sold only in pairs because guests are seated across from each other at one long communal table.

Do I have to bring my printed ticket?
A mobile or printed ticket is fine. All guests must have a valid ticket.

Is my ticket refundable?
Tickets are not refundable. If you cannot attend, you may give your ticket to another group.

What happens if it rains?
The Black & White Dinner is a rain or shine event. We will cancel if conditions are dangerous.

I have another question!
Please don't hesitate to contact us with additional questions about the Black & White Dinner.

Reviews

Rotten Tomatoes: 85%

“A bittersweet, complex, conversation-starting look back at the film business at the close of a tumultuous decade, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood also works as a strong argument for why it's too soon for Tarantino to pack it in.” -Slate

“It is Tarantino's best, bravest and most confrontationally impudent movie since Pulp Fiction.” -Financial Times

“The filmmaker may be on a mission to get everything right about 1969, down to the sounds and smells, but he's also inviting us to smoke a little wrongness.” -New Yorker

“You might say Tarantino's oeuvre is a box of chocolates: Some of them are more bitter and unpleasant than others, but they're all still chocolate. Once Upon a Time in Hollywood might be the tastiest one in the box.” -NPR

Clarence Clemons: Who Do I Think I Am? (Documentary)

Uncover a little-known side to saxophonist Clarence Clemons

The world knew him as The Big Man. The Minister of Soul. The Secretary of the Brotherhood. Musician, singer, songwriter and a lifetime member of the E Street Band.

But there was also a deeply spiritual side to Clarence Clemons that took the saxophonist to China.

In 2005, after a long tour with Bruce and the E Street Band, Clarence wanted to go someplace he had never been, to the other side of the world: China. 

Clarence Clemons: Who Do I Think I Am? shows the profound effect of a trip to Northeast China. This search for his true self took him from rural China to the streets of San Francisco. The documentary shows us his soulful mission and how it changed him, while paying  tribute to The Big Man through recollections with his closest friends and family members.

The film features interviews with President Bill Clinton, Jake Clemons, Joe Walsh, Willie Nile, Nils Lofgren, Vini Lopez, Norman Seldin, Michael Narada Walden, Gayle Morrison, Danny Clinch, Don Reo and additional family and friends who knew him well.

The film’s producer, Joe Amodei, and Backstreets writer Shawn Poole will be in attendance at this screening!
