Walter began his comedy career way back in 1982, when you still had to be funny to get a gig. He combines the fact that he has five ex-wives and four children into his off-beat brand of humor. Described by audiences as a cross between Don Rickles and Jonathan Winters, he is not afraid to tackle the delicate issues of relationships, child birth and travel, stamping them with his wicked sense of humor.
Hosting the 7 p.m. shows on Friday and Saturday is comedian Myles Weber. Born and raised in Vallejo, Calif., Weber discovered stand-up very early in life. In fact, he won his 5th grade talent show performing stand-up at just 10 years of age. He has since studied the art of making people laugh. Weber has worked with some of biggest names in comedy today, including Robin Williams, Rob Schneider, Louie Anderson, Ralphie May, Pablo Francisco, Jeffrey Ross and Dana Carvey. A truly delightful force onstage, you are sure to have many laughs, at his (and your own) expense.
Andy Garcia will host the 9:30 p.m. Saturday show. Guest comedians include OC Gillham (Friday), Alex Peckham (7 p.m. Saturday) and Danny Correa (9:30 p.m. Saturday).
