The Woodstock Comedy Festival takes place this weekend and the headliner will be Robert Klein. Klein is a Grammy, Tony, and Emmy-nominated comedian and actor who has appeared in film, theater, and on television for fifty years.
Born in the Bronx, he was a member of the famed Second City theatrical troupe in Chicago. He was nominated twice for Grammy Awards for "Best Comedy Album of the Year" for his albums Child of the Fifties and Mind Over Matter. He received a Tony Award nomination for Best Actor for his performance in the hit Neil Simon musical, They're Playing Our Song.
His memoir, The Amorous Busboy of Decatur Avenue is an affectionate coming-of-age story about growing up in the '50s and '60s before embarking on a show business career.
Robert Klein will be performing on Saturday night at the Bearsville Theatre in Woodstock, NY at 7:30.
