Straight from Las Vegas, “Robin: The Ultimate Robin Williams Tribute Experience,” will be onstage at The Open Chord beginning Friday, August 21 through Sunday the 23rd. Friday at 8pm, Saturday at 4 and 8pm and Sunday at 4pm. The show features Legends of Comedy veteran impressionist, Roger Kabler who celebrates the comedic genius of the late Robin Williams.
Kabler, also known for his impressions of Robert De Niro and John Travolta, is a multitalented actor with a wide range of experience. He served as the Zima spokesman in national TV commercials and was a regular on the last Carol Burnett series.
He also starred in his own NBC sitcom, “Rhythm and Blues,” about a very Caucasian guy who gets hired on an African-American radio station after being mistaken for a black man. In addition, he produced and starred in the award-winning movie, “Who the Hell is Bobby Roos?”
Robin Williams was arguably one of the greatest comedians of our time and Kabler’s tribute show respects his memory and celebrates his legacy. Recreating the look, voice and manic energy, Roger’s performance is hilarious and emotionally powerful. It is a production that gives fans another chance to laugh with the beloved entertainer who sadly took his own life in 2014.
After Williams’ death, his widow revealed he suffered from Parkinson’s disease and Lewy body dementia, which unfortunately had become debilitating.
