Bruce Vilanch to play Convention Center for CAMP benefit

by Dave on August 3, 2009

In the continuing quest to make Rehoboth Beach a hot stop on the entertainment circuit, CAMP Rehoboth is following the lead set by the folks who brought Joan Rivers to town.

On Aug. 15, comic/writer/raconteur Bruce Vilanch will be at the Rehoboth Beach Convention Center – and a packed house will be one more notch on Rehoboth’s reputation as a premier stop for nationally known performers.

In Hollywood, the battle cry is “Get Bruce!” if you want to laugh. And CAMP Rehoboth’s got him!

If you don’t know who Bruce Vilanch is, you will soon. And if you do know who he is you’re probably imagining him at the Rehoboth Beach Convention Center making people laugh until they cry and beg for mercy.

With Rehoboth Beach quickly becoming a hot stop on the comedy superstar circuit, its just one hilarious leap from Joan Rivers knocking them dead to Bruce Vilanch tearing the house down.

Get set for a night of laughter on Saturday, August 15 with the dynamic, hilarious and positively brilliant comic Bruce Vilanch at the Rehoboth Beach Convention Center in a benefit performance for CAMP Rehoboth.

Vilanch, who admits to being “exciting and glamorous,” comes to us from Hollywood, where he was once the quickest wit on Hollywood Squares. On Broadway he’s played Edna Turnblad in the musical Hairspray and is known as the best and most outrageous comedy writer in the business. He’s written for Bette Midler, Whoopi Goldberg, Lily Tomlin, Billy Crystal and other superstars, plus, he’s known as the magician in the wings – standing backstage at award shows (Oscars, Tonys, Emmys, Grammys), watching events unfold and writing hilarious lines that sound like instant ad libs from the hosts.

Tickets for the 8pm show on Aug. 15 are $100 for table seating that includes a post event “Meet & Greet,” and general admission tickets go for $75, $50, and $25. Sponsorships are also available. Call CAMP Rehoboth at 302-227-5620 for more information.
