TVInews 107 Pete Allman's Celebrity Scene Las Vegas honors Tony Curtis, Rich Little, Mayor Oscar Goodman, Tupac Shakur
Hong Kong Triad /
Tony Curtis to be Honored at Take 1 Nightclub and Italian-Cajun Restaurant.
Tony Curtis known throughout the world for such classic films as, 'Some Like it Hot,' 'Trapeze' 'Sweet Smell of Success', The Great Race and Othello, The Black Commando has enjoyed life through the roles that he has played of which he has been featured in over 150 roles.
Mr. Curtis will be honored by the Vegascommunityonline.com, an on line magazine, which features his column, Tony's 2 Cents. Tony and his wife Jill live in Anthem, which is located in Henderson. He recently spent some time with Marleen Marino and her husband Frank, the creators of vegascommunityonline.
His major enjoyment was giving them a tour of his home and showing them his many paintings. "Art is like acting, in the sense that it brings out your passion," said Curtis. That he does ever so graciously. Born in Manhattan and growing up under a father who was a tailor and dreamed about being in show business, Tony Curtis had a wonderful mentor.
Mr. Curtis is without question a man of great skill and versatility in the performing arts. On April 18th vegascommunityonline will honor Mr. Curtis along with other political leaders for their contributions in journalism. Pete Barbutti and myself will emcee the event which starts at 7:30 PM. For more information call 702-438-1313 or 434-5417
Part 02 / RICH LITTLE -- A STRONG VOICE IN COMEDY
Rich Little who has been invited to perform at The White House on numerous occasions impersonates every President. He has impersonated John F. Kennedy, Lyndon Johnson, Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford, Ronald Regan, Bill Clinton, and both Bushes.
Recently, Little chatted with me about his Great Scams of Golf video, a video he produced a few years ago. "Golf is one of my favorite past times. So one day while we were on the golf course my friend and I came up with this idea about putting together some great scams on golf.
It was hilarious and it sold well." Some of Little's favorite characters are Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sylvester Stallone, Jack Nicholson, and Clint Eastwood. "An impression is what you think a person sounds like. It could be a cartoon, it's your impression," stated Little.
When asked what his most difficult impression was, he said Frank Sinatra. "It took me seven years to perfect Sinatra. It only took me a few minutes to mimic Dr. Ruth." Little started his impressions at the age of 12 when he would answer the teachers back in their voices.
In fact, when Rich wanted to get dates, he would find the girl's favorite movie star and call them up and ask them out. When he would arrive he would tell them, "Sorry, Cary (Cary Grant) couldn't make it." Rich Little will also be honored at the first annual awards banquet by vegascommunityonline on April 18th at Take 1 Nightclub.
We've heard and read a lot of skuttle butt about Downtown Las Vegas not getting any better. The truth of the matter is downtown has improved immensely. I won't bore you with a lot of statistics, but I can assure you that Mayor Oscar Goodman and the City Council have no intentions of regressing their visions. Granted we do have buildings that need to be refurbished and rented out to business on Fremont Street.
That is just around the corner. As far as beautification of E. Fremont Street is concerned, the money is in the bank and things will get under way in August. I have personally walked Fremont Street on many occasions and seen a lot of un-wanted individuals stopped by the police.
Many of you have told me that you have seen these same people on the street dealing drugs and promoting prostitution. The fact is that every city has its red light district but Fremont East, as it will be called, and the entertainment district will not have to deal with that much longer.
There are some laws currently on the books that would put a drug dealer in jail for a year. Of course their are some extenuating circumstances regarding this matter.
For the purposes of Fremont East and the entertainment district, this will make it more attractive for folks to come and enjoy the entertainment that clubs will be offering. Take 1 Nightclub, the first live entertainment district indorsed by Mayor Goodman is presenting Latin Dinner shows Mon-Wed from 6-9PM. They will also have The Fame Game which will feature audience participation.
There is also the "Latin Quarter" featuring Salsa, Meringue & Punta from 10 PM to Close. On Thursday's there will be there will be 'The Underground Crown", Las Vegas's only televised Hip Hop Open Mike. On Friday they have 'Full Throttle Fridaze' with Bikers and Babes. Saturday is Rock Bands and on Sunday is the Rhythm & Rhyme Showcase, comedy, Poetry, R&B & Dance.
Hennesy's, a new Irish bar that just opened across from Jillians, has live music from time to time. There is also The Griffin that will be opening shortly on Fremont East and a 20,000 sq ft nightclub called The Brass Bar above Hennesy's will be an ultra style lounge. In any event, the clubs and the condominium projects are just what will turn a leaf for downtown Las Vegas.
TUPAC SHAKUR NOW AT MADAME TUSSAUDS
The rap world's single greatest icon, the late Tupac (2Pac) Amaru Shakur is now part of the all-star line up of Madame Tussauds Las Vegas. Like all Madame Tussauds attractions, the Tupac Eternal exhibit is interactive. Fans can pose for photos and also are able to listen to select Tupac music tracks.
Ms. Afeni Shakur, Tupac's mother and caretaker of her son's public image stated, "Our family is all but speechless by this great honor being granted to my son by Madame Tussauds. We came from a very humble background and there was nothing in our lives that would indicate the Shakur name would ever be celebrated in show a timeless fashion.
I am extremely proud of my family for taking part in this ceremony. I think people will also understand why &endash; at an emotional level- I am still unable to return to Las Vegas. However, I will certainly be there with everyone, including my son- in spirit.
