At CAMP Rehoboth on Saturday, July 9
In a special one-night only event of laughter and emotion, CAMP Rehoboth presents the hilarious show Two Comics, One Voice—The stand-up of Bob Smith and Eddie Sarfaty, performed by Eddie Sarfaty.
The event will benefit CAMP and celebrate the release of Bob Smith’s sharp and funny new novel Remembrance of Things I Forgot.
“Smith takes an absolutely hysterical romp through our achingly recent history. His characters are instantly recognizable in their queer archetypes without being stereotypical He’s not afraid of balancing humor and sadness and manages to combine youthful optimism with the cynicism of age.”—Publisher’s Weekly
July 9th is going to be a riot—and an evening you will not forget. Both men have had long, successful careers as stand-up comics and writers, and have been featured on The Tonight Show, The Today Show, Comedy Central, HBO, and Logo. Rehoboth regulars might remember these two funny guys from appearances locally at The Renegade, Blue Moon, Pride, and more, and as part of the troupe Funny Gay Males.
In 2007 Bob Smith was diagnosed with Lou Gehrig’s Disease which has slurred his speech. But to keep bringing Bob’s brilliant sense of humor to his fans, his friend Eddie Sarfaty has come to the rescue. Eddie will be performing his own razor-sharp material, and Bob’s hilarious stand-up as well.
