Comedian Tom Dreesen has had the pleasure of being the opening act for Frank Sinatra for fourteen years on tour. Now he’s sharing those stories on the road with Sinatra in his acclaimed one man show ‘An Evening of Laughter and Memories of Frank Sinatra’ this weekend.
“As you know, I toured with Frank Sinatra for fourteen years, I was his opening act. Everywhere I go, even when I was touring with him, people always wanted to know about him,” said Tom. “After he passed away…I put together a one man show called ‘An Evening of Laughter and Memories of Frank Sinatra’.”
His one man show has been a huge hit with audiences across the country, and finally for just two night only, Tom is bringing it to Los Angeles. He mixes his signature stand-up with stories about Sinatra that gives an unique look inside the daily life of Old Blue Eyes himself.
“I take the audience from that little boy in Harvey, Illinois hearing Sinatra on the jukebox while he’s shining shoes to carrying his coffin out of a church in Beverly Hills,” said Tom. “So it’s a lot of funny stories, but a lot of poignant stories too.”
“He’s the most interesting character you’d ever meet in your life aside from being this enormously talented, arguably the career show business has ever known,” added Tom.
Don’t miss out on this limited chance to see Tom Dreesen share hilarious and heartfelt stories from his time on tour with Sinatra this Friday and Saturday (April 12-13) at Theatre West. For tickets and more information, visit theatrewest.org.
