Bring your family and friends to this “Astonishing” fundraising show, created and performed by comedian and actor, Roger Kabler.
An Italian dinner will be served at 6:00pm, followed by the performance at 7:30pm This program is open to the community. Tickets can be purchased separately, if you wish to attend the show only.
Roger Kabler trained and performed as an actor in New York in his early 20’s but shifted to standup comedy for his love of doing impressions. He became a regular at the standup clubs, where he was discovered by television networks. At 28 years old, he became a regular cast member on the Carol Burnett Show revival in 1991, and then starred in his own series on NBC, Rhythm and Blues. After his show was cancelled, he focused on a new career as a portrait artist.
When Robin Williams passed away in 2014, Roger decided to pay tribute to him by creating a show that would recreate the experience of seeing Robin live in concert. The show has travelled across America and Canada for the past 9 years, and now you can see this award-winning show right here at Temple Beth Israel!
“The Robin Williams impersonator blew the audience away! His uncanny resemblance and spot on mimicry captured the essence of the legendary comedian. From the rapid-fire jokes to heartfelt moments, he navigated Williams’ diverse repertoire flawlessly. The energy was electric, laughter contagious, and the nostalgia palpable.”
