Hudson’s hilarious one-man tribute to comedian George Burns pays homage to the legendary performer and the golden age of comedy.
To know George Burns is to love George Burns. The cigar, the glasses, the wit and the kind Grandfather like image he projected in his later years all found a way into our hearts and many of us grew up with George as another member of the family.
Join Broadway and film actor Duffy Hudson as he takes you on a stroll along nostalgia lane. He sings, dances and tells stories like only George Burns can.
This 75 minute, one-man, musical, comedy performance of our beloved George Burns is sure to delight the entire family.
