Tiger Woods Gets the ‘Runaround’ at Las Vegas Comedy Show
January 4, 2010 by VegasNews.com
Las Vegas top rated singing impressionist Larry G Jones ‘The Man of 1002 Voices,’ has added a comedic ‘Tiger twist’ to his show with the addition of a song parody to the tune of Dion and the Belmont’s 1961 number one hit, ‘Runaround Sue.’ The launch of this video parody, taped Live in Las Vegas, has spurred a five star rating and a huge reaction of thousands of hits on youtube.com. Readers can view the embedded video on Larry’s youtube channel or at the homepage of his main website.
Tiger Woods is just the latest in a series of celebrities and Las Vegas headliners to get the spoof treatment from impressionist and comedian Larry G Jones. In celebration of his eighth year headlining in Las Vegas, Larry has added an amazing new segment to his show called a ‘Trip down the strip.’ This incredibly entertaining show finale includes tributes and song parodies featuring legendary many Las Vegas icons such as Cher, Elvis Presley, Neil Diamond, Elton John, Bette Midler, Tom Jones, and many of today’s top shows such as Phantom of the Opera, Cirque Du Soleil, The Rat Pack, and The Jersey Boys. It’s not just that the parodies are funny that make it fun to watch, it’s also that Larry can sound so much like the original artists.
In a phone interview Larry commented “The Tiger Woods parody idea was collaboration with Danny Gans’ (Las Vegas late great singing impressionist who won Las Vegas’ Entertainer of the Year a record twelve times) drummer Raphael Erardy who was with Danny’s show for the last 20 years. Raphael and I are working together on a new TV show project set to launch on a new cable station in March 2010 and to re-produce my live Las Vegas show to take it to the next level. Runaround Sue was already in my show as a completely different parody. When Raphael came to me with the Tiger Woods twist on the song I thought it was a great idea so we collaborated and came up with this final version.”
It’s clever parodies like this latest Tiger Woods spoof along with five decades of baby boomers’ favorite hit music, and scores of dead-on voices that have kept this multi-award winning show ranked in the top ten of ‘Things to do in Las Vegas’ on Trip Advisor.com for years. After eight years and over 2000 Las Vegas shows, Larry G Jones has paid his dues and is excited about the possibilities of new venues and ventures in 2010. As an additional treat for the ‘baby boomers,’ the show is hosted by America’s top Red Skelton Impersonator Brian Hoffman who performs the jokes and routines that made Red famous.
