40 years ago Lewis and Clark were the biggest names lighting up the vaudeville stages. Now they will return to take center stage on television in a CBS special on the history of comedy. The only problem is they haven’t spoken in years.
Jerry Adler, last seen on CRT’s stage in the smash hit comedy I’m Connecticut, returns as Willie Clark. Richard Kline, of television’s Three’s Company makes his CRT debut as Al Lewis. Neil Simon’s writing and sharp one-liners provide non-stop laughs and a nostalgic glimpse of life on and off the stage. The Sunshine Boys captures the fading days of vaudeville, and provides a hysterical roadmap to the comedy of today.
The cast includes Jerry Adler, Richard Kline, Tina Fabrique, Richard Ruiz, Sara Andreas, Steve Hayes, Thomas Brazzle and Conor Donnally.
