A Couple of Plugs For OH MY GOODNESS…IT’S PAUL LYNDE! Starring Michael Airington

Airington - Lynde

My talented friend Michael Airington will be performing his awesome one-man show Oh My Goodness…It’s Paul Lynde! in Palm Springs at The Purple Room January 22nd – 24th and in San Diego at Martinis Above Fourth January 28th and 29th. I’ve posted previously about Michael’s show here and here….and am always happy to give him a shout out whenever he is appearing somewhere. I believe very strongly in Michael and his show….I have said this before and I will say it again – Michael doesn’t just portray Paul Lynde….he channels him!

Today’s Christmas video is from the 1976 Christmas episode of Donny and Marie and features Paul Lynde as a disgruntled Santa Claus. Need I say more?

Gigantic Titanic Laughs

Michael - Doris 1

This past Saturday evening my good and talented friend Michael Airington was performing in his one man show, Oh My Goodness, It’s Paul Lynde, at the Hudson Backstage Theater in Hollywood. Part of the show is a scenario in which Michael shows us how Paul might have auditioned for some famous films, including Love Story, Taxi Driver, Deliverance and The Exorcist….this leads up to Michael/Paul asking a woman from the audience to come up on stage to recreate the final scene between Jack and Rose in Titanic. The woman chosen is usually a young non-actress….but in the video you are about to see, the part of Rose is played by veteran actress Doris Roberts. Needless to say, she steals the show. Enjoy.

In Praise of Michael Airington and OH MY GOODNESS, IT’S PAUL LYNDE!

Airington - Lynde

Michael Airington’s awesome one man show, Oh My Goodness, It’s Paul Lynde! opened last night at the Hudson Backstage Theater in Hollywood last evening and here is a fantastic review from Jose Ruiz which begins as such:

“One of the most riotous 90 minutes you will ever spend is being presented at the Hudson Backstage as Michael Airington reincarnates the legendary comedian Paul Lynde. His portrait of Paul Lynde is brilliant, nostalgic and heartfelt. Directed by John Hall and based in part on Lynde’s life and 1976 touring show, this presentation is non-stop laugh riot where Airington’s portrayal makes you swear you were in the same room with Paul Lynde. The voice, the mannerisms, the quick repartee are all there. The impromptu exchanges with random audience members underscore the wit that Paul had, but even more so, the razor sharp quickness of Airington’s mind who can turn laughs on a dime and never break character is in full display.”

A Plug For the AWESOME Michael Airington!

OMG,,,IPL

If you are a fan of the late actor/comedian Paul Lynde and you live in the Los Angeles area, you MUST see my very talented friend Michael Airington in his BRILLIANT one man show Oh My Goodness, It’s Paul Lynde!, which opens at the Hudson Backstage Theater on Saturday, August 23rd and plays every Saturday night through September 27th.

I cannot say enough about Michael’s performance….he doesn’t just portray Lynde, he CHANNELS him! Michael’s show is based on the actual show that Lynde toured with in 1976 (Michael won a trunk of the actual material and music from the show in an eBay auction several years ago…and his show is sanctioned by the Lynde Estate)….and Michael has added his own original material….plus the show features questions and answers from The Hollywood Squares, complete with voiceovers from Squares host Peter Marshall, who recorded them specifically for this show. Marshall is such a supporter of Michael’s efforts that he did the voiceovers for free….is that a vote of confidence or what? Here’s a video that Peter Marshall did to plug an earlier incarnation of the show:

And here is a trailer for Michael’s show from a few years ago:

Perfect Timing

Paul Lynde was a master at turning mundane variety show sketches into comedic gold with his timing and delivery….this clip from Donny and Marie is a perfect example.
