No matter whos under that ruffled lounge suit and dark glasses, Clifton is sure to bring the house down. Opening tonight and continuing tomorrow at 8 p.m. at the Walnut Room, 3131 Walnut Street, Clifton and his nine-piece big-band orchestra will do everything from nostalgic Kaufman bits to show tunes and current-events standup. Stereotypically, part of the gag of the act is that it was terrible, says Kinsner. Thats not what this tour is about at all. Proceeds benefit Hurricane Katrina victims.
Tickets are $30 in advance and $35 at the door. For more information, call 303-292-1700 or go to www.tonyclifton.net.
