If you don’t recognize Patton Oswalt’s face, you may recognize his voice. The longtime actor and performer, who’s had starring roles in The King of Queens and the Diablo Cody film Young Adult, has also famously lent his pipes to the anthropomorphic rat Remy in Disney Pixar’s Ratatouille and Aqua Teen Hunger Force Zombie Ninja Pro-Am. Onstage though, he takes on a persona that’s decidedly more biting than any cartoon, aiming his pitch-black wit at everything from to organized religion to magicians. But he still makes room to explore lighter pop-culture topics as well, such as the third-tier players on the X-Men’s roster.
And Oswald doesn’t just act, voice animated characters, and craft thought-provoking jokes either—he also pens books. His latest, Silver Screen Fiend, details his obsession with film, while his previous work, Zombie Spaceship Wasteland, was a New York Times bestseller.
Fillmore Miami Beach at the Jackie Gleason Theater
Back in 1950, when it was still known as the Miami Beach Municipal Auditorium, Bob Hope, Jack Benny, and Frank Sinatra could be seen in the audience acting like average Joes while enjoying song-and-dance shows and boxing bouts. Throughout the following decades, the entertainment mecca has remained a magnet for famous entertainers. In 1964, when the city of Miami asked famed funnyman and honeymooner Jackie Gleason to move his television variety show from New York to Miami Beach, he relocated in a bang-zoom, declaring “Miami Beach audiences are the greatest in the world,” then muttering under his breath, “and New York audiences smell like Art Carney’s hat.”
Rechristened as The Jackie Gleason Theater of the Performing Arts in 1987, the theater hosted the best in Broadway shows, dance and classical-music performances, and concerts throughout the ‘70s, ‘80s, and ‘90s. In 2007, the venue underwent a multimillion-dollar face- and body-lift, adding even more glitz to the sleek columned entrance and the spacious multichandeliered auditorium. Now merged with California’s famed Fillmore chain, the theater has inherited a rich rock ‘n’ roll history to add to its already lofty annals.
