Gracie Allen – Underappreciated Comic Genius

September 14, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

 Gracie Allen is one of the funniest women ever to perform in American theater, radio, television and film. And yet if I asked you to name the greatest comedienne’s of all time, you would probably mention names like Lucille Ball, Carol Burnett, Tina Fey, and Mary Tyler Moore, but you might not remember to include Gracie Allen.  that’s a shame, because Gracie Allen deserves immense respect for creating one of the most memorable, quotable and beloved comic characters of all time.

Gracie Allen – Underappreciated Comic Genius

 This multimedia presentation will highlight the phenomenal career of George Burns and Gracie Allen.

Among the highlights will be Gracie Allen’s  historic and hysterical run for president in 1940 and her lasting impact on  vaudeville, radio, and television comedy,,This presentation will amuse you and entertain you but also open your eyes to why Gracie Allen deserves to be remembered as one of the great comediennes of all time
