"Who's on First?"
Friday & Saturday, September 27 & 28, 2019 at 3:00 and 7:00 p.m.
In the wake of the North American touring show of the Three Stooges Live on Stage, Mr. Knight came up with another show idea called VODVille. The team of major US actors with premium credits in their own right as national film, TV and dramatic award winners happened on creating a new show. They also happen to have a huge background in Vaudeville and the Golden Age of the Silver Screen. With major credits from Broadway, Saturday Night Live, Emmy Award winning TV shows, the guys revamped a new honorarium show with tributes to the Vaudeville Greats: a tribute if you will in the form of 7 ten minute plays, showcasing Red Skelton, Abbott and Costello, Jerry Lewis on his father the vaudeville great Danny Lewis, Laurel and Hardy, the Marx Brothers, the Four Stooges, that's correct, including the major ones, and more. All hosted by Amazon Prime's leading emcee Benny Biffle, of the Michael Schlesinger produced film Biffle and Shooster. It’s a cavalcade of vintage Vaudeville stars who made it to the heralded early days of film. Audiences can love and enjoy any of these vintage star emulators in the well studies bits and routines, as the show is coming to join us Lakeside by special arrangement at the Spotlight Club, in San Antonio Tlay.
The show is an honorarium to the classic legends who stand the test of time having become American and Global Entertainment Public Icons. Early black and white loveable clowns and comedy mean a lot to us all. Nothing today that gives us laughter would probably be here if it wasn’t for these legends. Producer Ron Knight is quite pleased that Nick Santa Maria from Broadway, TV Emmy Award winning Johnny Mariano, TV Creator and hit Broadway musical creator Pauly Louis, and Bob Greenberg from Conan O’Brian, David Letterman and Saturday Night Live are joining in on this comedy venues venture, and will be here in Mexico for the shows.
“No one knows more about vaudeville than these larger than life guys, some who also teach Classic Silver Screen Cinema courses across the United States. I am sure hoping that everyone looks forward to seeing which of them will be able to tell us: WHO’S ON FIRST?

When Lakeside resident Ron Knight last left the area in 2015, he ventured into concert promotion and live shows hopscotching across the United States. Many of the live shows are entertainment from Warner Brothers’ Animaniacs in Concert, C3 Entertainment’s The Three Stooges Live on Stage, an upcoming Gumby-Fest featuring yep, that green Claymation guy live on stage, some live shows adapted from MGM Studios, and even a 30’s style throw back produced by former Hollywood studio executive Michael Schlesinger, an ardent admirer of 1930s comedy teams. His independent film Biffle and Shooster has become a major comedy release on Amazon Prime.
