Bernie and Red can be summed up in one word — entertainment — whether it’s a comedy routine for the ladies on “How to look thinner” or an operatic aria in fake Italian, a dynamic vocal performance of Don’t Cry for Me Argentina or an old vaudeville piece that your grandpa used to sing, Bernie and Red can pull it off and have you shouting for more.
The show is a fundraiser to help the Williams Lake Elks Club
Tickets are $20 and available at the door.
“It will be a fun night. They are an excellent comedy troupe. By buying a ticket you are supporting the Elks and the Elks Hall,” says Zimmerman.
