Comedian SCOTT BLAKEMAN
A liberal dose of Polical Humor
Saturday, January 8, 2011 at 8:00pm

“An astute, funny political observer who loosed his
darts in a tone that remained suave and smilingly
ironic.” New York Times

Scott Blakeman is “The top political comedian working in
New York today”(NBC-TV). Scott performs regularly at
Laughing Liberally shows in New York and he hosted
Breaking Convention: A Liberal Dose of Political Humor
in Denver and St. Paul during the 2008 Conventions.
Blakeman was a guest panelist on MSNBC’s live coverage of
the 2010 White House Correspondents Dinner. Scott appears
regularly as a liberal pundit on The Strategy Room, a live
webcast at FoxNews.com, where he takes a pragmatic
approach to try to find common ground with those he disagrees with.
Scott hosts a political comedy talk show The End Of The Week As We
Know It at The Tank in New York, with a panel of liberal and
conservative pundits. Blakeman tours with Palestinian-American
comedian Dean Obeidallah in Standup for Peace: The Two Comedian
Solution to Middle East Peace. Scott was the warmup comedian for the
Late Show with David Letterman. Blakeman teaches the
Standup Comedy Workshop at The New School

Do The Right Thing

Spike Lee’s incendiary look at race relations in America, circa 1989, is so colorful and exuberant for its first three-quarters that you can almost forget the terrible confrontation that the movie inexorably builds toward. Do the Right Thing is a joyful, tumultuous masterpiece–maybe the best film ever made about race in America, revealing racial prejudices and stereotypes in all their guises and demonstrating how a deadly riot can erupt out of a series of small misunderstandings. Set on one block in Bedford-Stuyvesant on the hottest day of the summer, the movie shows the whole spectrum of life in this neighborhood and then leaves it up to us to decide if, in the end, anybody actually does the “right thing.” Featuring Danny Aiello as Sal, the pizza parlor owner; Lee himself as Mookie, the lazy pizza-delivery guy; John Turturro and Richard Edson as Sal’s sons; Lee’s sister Joie as Mookie’s sister Jade; Rosie Perez as Mookie’s girlfriend Tina; Ossie Davis and Ruby Dee as the block elders, Da Mayor and Mother Sister; Giancarlo Esposito as Mookie’s hot-headed friend Buggin’ Out; Bill Nunn as the boom-box toting Radio Raheem; and Samuel L. Jackson as deejay Mister Señor Love Daddy. A rich and nuanced film to watch, treasure, and learn from–over and over again.

Auburn Public Theatre Cinema That Midnight Kiss and The Toast of New Orleans

Welcome to the Auburn Public Theatre Cinema.

Auburn Public Theatre Cinema That Midnight Kiss and The Toast of New Orleans
All films are $5 .
Enjoy our comfortable seating and dynamite sound system!

Fri/Sat January 9th and 10th 2009
Mario Lanza Double Feature! only $5
6pm That Midnight Kiss
8pm The Toast of New Orleans
The first 10 patrons get in free!

 

That Midnight Kiss and The Toast of New Orleans take us back to a time in the history of film making that has never been equalled. Everything about these films seems to work. The stars were superb, and the costumes and sets were magnificent. The stories were light and frothy, and there were no real attempts to create “real” stories. The audiences happily suspended their disbelief, and were contnent to be carried away by the beauty and purity of the music. Kathryn Grayson and Mario Lanza were magnificent singers and were perhaps at their best in opera and operatic inspired music, a regular feature of films starring these two singers. We may well have been seeing the beginning od “crossover” music here. These films represent the best in production values of their day, and were made in 1949 and 1950 when the world was still expressing the joys of the early Post-War period. Definitely 5 star.
