Rob Schneider had NY rolling in their seats at The Paramount
Winter blizzards and getting older are nothing to the legendary comedian
What is better on a cold winter’s evening than warming up by a fire with a great Rob Schneider movie? Going to see the comedy genius live at a warm and inviting venue. That is exactly what happened on the evening of March 11 in Huntington, NY at The Paramount as Schneider performed to a sold out crowd on a bone-chilling night.
Immediately following Haft was another Long Island comedic legend, two-time winner of the Long Island Press’ Best Of L.I. for Best Comedian, Rich Walker. He is also the co-founder and professor of Stand-Up University, a place for aspiring comics to learn the fine art of Stand-Up Comedy. Taking the stage there is no mistaking that he is a true Long Islander as his heavy accent helped tell his jokes. Through his fifteen minutes on stage he had the audience laughing with his brand of comedy about everyday life and his family. At one point in his set, he boasted about his son getting into acting and managed to land a lead role in a play, but the play was Annie. The audience clearly enjoyed Walker’s set laughing and clapping the whole time.
Schneider took to the stage with ease as his fans cheered and clapped for him. Lifting the microphone from the stand he had them laughing immediately to jokes about his aging body now that he is over fifty. He spoke about finding cookies more interesting than sex nowadays to not wanting to get to ripped in the gym as older skin is thin (and if you get too pumped up your heart will become visible).
He touched base on the immigration issues and how immigrants are what make this country great, “especially the old ones,” poking fun at how immigration has changed. He also felt that the travel ban should include Canada as they have too many cute actors coming over here taking American jobs. He touched base on his personal life, his previous marriages and how relationships are all about communication. He cited the differences between how men and women perceive the meaning of things, as an example, “When my wife says, I’m going downstairs to get a drink of water, what she is really saying is, can you go downstairs and get me a drink of water? And when I say, do you want me to go downstairs to get you a drink of water? What I’m really saying is, do I really have to go downstairs and get you some water?” It is all in the fine lines and he had his fans uncontrollably laughing.
Schneider put on an awesome show and his fans left the venue with big smiles on their faces. He has a heavy lineup of tour dates taking him all over the United States all the way through to September. Should one of those dates be at a venue near you, be sure to check him out live as he is a blast.
