Stand up comedian Danny Curtis has headlined shows at major resorts, hotels and comedy clubs nationwide. Danny is a graduate of the American Academy Of Dramatic Arts and has starred off-Broadway in a musical comedy that he wrote, “Walls Of Chance”. He has written comedy and special musical material for many entertainers including Gabe Kaplan, David Frye and Rodney Dangerfield.
Danny also stars in “The Road To Hope” along with Michael Wright and Rebecca Lee Lerman, in a journey that follows the careers of Bob Hope as well as Bing Crosby and Dorothy Lamour. It reaches into their movies and pulls out many of the songs that made the trio so famous in the 1940’s through the 1970’s. This show includes twelve great numbers including Academy Award winning songs, “Thanks For The Memory”, “Buttons and Bows”, and “Swinging On A Star” that are performed both traditionally and with comedy. The climax of the show is a reenactment of the 1943 Pepsodent Bob Hope radio show broadcast from the Hollywood Canteen, complete with sound effects and zany characters such as Professor Colonna, Vera Vague, Bette Davis and Gracie Allen.
This show will bring back many wonderful memories for those over forty, and create many lasting memories for those under forty. It’s a nostalgic trip with comedy and musical rest stops on “The Road To Hope”.
