You know him as The Church Lady who says “Well, isn’t that special,” as Hans of the Hans and Franz bodybuilding duo, as Garth, the co-host of Wayne’s World and the Grumpy Old Man of Saturday Night Live’s Weekend Updates.
In the political arena, he can easily be the former president George Bush, Jerry Brown, Bob Dole or H. Ross Perot as well as both Bill and Hillary Clinton. In the world of show business, he’s a snap at Johnny Carson, George Burns, Regis Philbin, Robin Williams and Charlie Sheen.
If you’d like a comment from Suze Orman or Ted Koppel, he’s your guy. Clearly there’s only one man for this multitude of personas and that’s the clever impersonator and stand-up comic Dana Carvey.
A staple of Saturday Night Live for years, he will soon be gracing the stage of the Bushnell Center for the Performing Arts. On Friday, November 11 at 8 p.m., Carvey will appear as himself and so many others, a plethora of personalities, in Lite 100.5 WRCH’s Nite of Life and Laughter.
Tickets start at $37.50 - $70.00, with special tickets for a pre-show reception at $102.50 to benefit the Helen and Harry Grey Cancer Center at Hartford Hospital. Call 860-987-5900 or go online at www.bushnell.org for tickets to laugh and celebrate life.
Look for Dana Carvey as the Crazy Puppeteer in Adam Sandler’s new comedy “Jack and Jill,” where Sandler plays both twins at the holidays, opening November 11. Well, isn’t that special!
