George Burns and Friends to perform at Llano Grande Resort

GEORGE BURNS_PETE SALZERRemember when you listened to the comedy greats on the radio and then later watched them on TV?  You can enjoy the golden age of comedy once again right here in the Rio Grande Valley.  George Burns and Friends will be appearing at Llano Grande Resort & Country Club on Friday, February 5, 2016 at 7 pm.  Doors will open at 6 pm.

Pete Salzer does an amazing tribute to George Burns.  When he appeared at Victoria Palms in December of 2011, there was a collective ‘gasp’ as he walked on stage.  He was the very image of George Burns!  And when he spoke, you would have sworn you were listening to George himself.  He captures the look, voice and style of this lovable actor and comedian.  He has paid tribute to George Burns at the Tropicana Showroom in Atlantic City, on the stage of the Royal Caribbean Cruise Line, and for a variety of groups and organizations.

The Friends section of the show stars Lynn Roberts as Bob Hope, Jimmy Durante, Jack Benny & Red Skelton.  Lynn won the prestigious Bea Fogelman REEL AWARD for Lifetime Achievement for his impersonation of Bob Hope at the International Celebrity Impersonators Convention at the Flamingo Hotel in Las Vegas.

As ‘George Burns’ reminisces about his comedian friends, Lynn gives his impressions of Bob Hope, Jimmy Durante, Jack Benny & Red Skelton.  You’ll believe that these beloved comedians are right on the stage in front of you and you will spend your evening laughing and enjoying the memories.

You don’t want to miss this memorable evening of fun and laughter and it’s all happening at Llano Grande Resort & Country Club, 2215 East West Blvd in Mercedes (Exit Mile 2 West off Expressway 83 and go south about a mile).  Tickets are $15 and can be purchased at the Llano Grande activity office.  To order and pay by phone, call 956-565-2228.  For more information, contact Robert Ferguson at 574-361-2947.
