My name is Debbie; I’m a librarian in the SF Bay Area & I like to watch TV, sometimes movies too, and this will be my spot to blog about them. I have a book-oriented blog, My Mind on Books, but sometimes my mind is here on media.
Re: Robert Klein: Unfair & Unbalanced-Clips
Thirty-five years ago Robert Klein launched stand-up comedy on HBO with his first solo special. Now, he’s returning for his ninth one-man show on the network as Robert Klein: Unfair & Unbalanced, which debuts Saturday June 12 at 10-11PM ET/PT.
Taped in the Amaturo Theater at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., Robert Klein: Unfair & Unbalanced features his signature blend of observational humor and original songs, accompanied by the Henry Mancini Institute Orchestra, a 47-piece ensemble conducted by producer and musical director Bob Stein. Topics discussed in the special include: political indiscretions and hypocrisy in Washington; the challenges of opening plastic packaging; bizarre sales techniques; TV and pop culture; pharmacological concert experiences; unusual movie love scenes; and musical numbers about Barack Obama, medicinal herbs and gay marriage.
In 1975, Robert Klein made HBO history when he starred in the network’s first stand-up comedy special, “An Evening with Robert Klein,” going on to headline seven more specials. He was Emmy®-nominated for the song “Colonoscopy,” which he co-wrote, from his 2000 HBO special “Child in His ‘50s,” and also performed on several of the network’s “Comic Relief™” fund raising events.
Here’s two clips from the special “Medical Marijuana” and “Airport Sex”.
