For those of you that know me, you know that I quote Kevin Pollak as one of my favorite comedians of all time. I had the opportunity to watch him perform maybe five years ago at the Laughs Unlimited in Old Sacramento and even though I have seen literally a thousand comedians perform live, I still get excited watching him work. As for Christopher Walken, most of you already know that Pollak’s impersonation is not only spot-on but probably ranked number one amongst his peers, including Walken himself.
You also should know that I love mystic around the raunchy and usually obscene comedy insider joke about The Aristocrats. (If you haven’t heard of it, google it. It is an acquired taste so start off slowly!). A number of years ago comedian Paul Provenza did a documentary of the same name featuring many well known comedians, including Pollak, doing Walken, telling the joke. So far, I have interviewed Bob Saget and Doug Stanhope who both have appeared in the movie. I hope to interview Kevin one day as well.
And the great news is that Pollak is performing May 8th at Cache Creek Casino in a few weeks. More information on that to come!
