  • The Dean Martin Celebrity Roast

    If you're like many Gen Xers, you may spend early Sunday mornings (between 3:15am and 4:20am) watching super highlarious comedy outings from the '70s—like the one mentioned in the above title—hoping to coax the ghost of your dead dad out of the teevee and into your little Downtown chante. I know it hasn't worked so far, but the experience reminds one how funny the roast format is. It works great with elected leaders and their cities, as well as celebrities, in case you wanna know. If you wanna know more, attend the Roast of Albuquerque on Sunday, Sept. 22 at the Hiland Theater. The hijinks begin at 7:30pm and the focus of the flaming is upon our beloved city and mayor, the honorable Tim Keller. The host is OG Burque actor Miguel Martinez and comics such as Black Mike, Nicholas Starr, Evan Wrons, Hollyanne Byrd and Sarah Kennedy. Hm, what about Don Rickles and Orson Welles? Tickets for this all-ages cook-off of sorts range in price from free to $15, and if you don't go, I'm a-gonna send Ruth Buzzi and her hairnet after you. (August March)
