Clowns, like supermodels, are hired for their ability to walk in specialty shoes and wear desserts in front of a large crowd. See how a pro in pie dodging does it with today's Groupon: for $17, you get one general-admission ticket to Remembering Red — A Tribute to Red Skelton on Mondays and Tuesdays at 2 p.m. (a $34.95 value) in the Westin Casuarina Las Vegas Hotel, Casino and Spa. Children 12 and younger get in free.

Performer Brian Hoffman enchants audiences for 80 minutes with faithful resurrections of clown king Red Skelton's characters and humor. Staple personas of Skelton's TV variety show, which aired from September 1951 to August 1971, find new life in front of new audiences, presumably wearing new outfits. Hoffman presents the bickering seagull twosome Gertrude and Heathcliff, embodies befuddled bumpkin Clem Kadiddlehopper, and executes the social faux pas and meandering footwork of Freddie the Freeloader. To round out the performance, Hoffman draws laughter from silence with pantomimed segments and inspires patriotism with recitations of Red's augmented Pledge of Allegiance. Decades compress as Hoffman finally bids the audience adieu with Skelton's customary variety-show closing, "Good night and may God bless."

Customer Reviews

Brian did a terrific job in remembering Red Skelton and his act made you feel like you were watching and listening to the real Red Skelton. It brought back many memories of good wholesome entertainment, and a special acknowledgment of characters like Gertrude and Heathcliff, and Clem Kaddilhopper. A perfect tribute to Red Skelton.
