Bob Nelson

Back by popular demand: Bob Nelson! Join us for his laugh-out-loud performance at the Newtown Theatre on Saturday, November 3. Doors will open at 7 PM for the 8 PM show. 

Watching a Bob Nelson live performance is like watching several different types of top comedians all rolled up into one. Characters like the lovable nerd Eppy Epperman, punchy boxer Jiffy Jeff and chicken  rancher Wilby Stuckinson are as funny and memorable as any you will see in comedy today. Bob's football routine is a recognized comedy classic and "Morning", his tale of a farmer and a duck, is one of  the finest works of one man showmanship to grace the modern stage. If all that were not enough, Bob's  ability to relay personal stories and observations about everyday life put him in the same league as the  best of today's stand-up comics. His shows are filled with spontaneity, zaniness and singular moments that will astound you. Throughout his career Bob Nelson has been hailed as one of the most gifted funny people on the planet.

A contemporary of Jerry Seinfeld and Jay Leno, Mr. Nelson's extraordinary talents have been refined by a career that has included multiple appearances on the Merv Griffin Show, the Tonight Show and David Letterman. Bob has performed live thousands of times at hundreds of comedy clubs, colleges and other exciting live venues including the Las Vegas strip, Radio City Music Hall and on NYC's Broadway. He has also had the great honor to perform at the Ford Theater in Washington D.C. for president Ronald  Reagan. Most recently, he has performed on stage at The Grand Ole Opry.

Bob Nelson was Rodney Dangerfield's opening act for eight of the most popular years of Mr Dangerfield's career. Bob was prominently featured in two of Rodney's enormously popular HBO stand up comedy showcases, alongside other comedy phenoms like Rosanne Barr and Sam Kineson. That led to two HBO specials starring Bob Nelson, including the ground breaking classic Nelson Schmelson.

Bob won an Emmy Award in Philadelphia for a children’s show he wrote and starred in. Bob has since had supporting roles in Nora Ephram's directorial film debut This Is My Life with Julie Kavner and Ivan Reitman's box office smash Kindergarten Cop with Arnold Schwarzenegger. Bob also starred in the Zucker Brother's Marx Brother's take off Brain Donors.

From 2006 to 2010 Bob had his own One Man Comedy show in Branson, Missouri. In 2012 he moved the show to Pigeon forge, Tennessee and performed at the Bob Nelson Family Theatre until 2014.

Gilbert Gottfried

The one and only Gilbert Gottfried (with special guest Bill Chiang) will perform two shows at the Newtown Theatre on Saturday, October 7. Doors open an hour before each show.

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.
