June 29 – 30, 2019 Legendary comedian Buddy Hackett is brought to life in this live musical, theatrical production, told by the person closest to him…his son, Sandy Hackett.
Directed by Lisa Dawn Miller, My Buddy takes the audience on a journey that explores the deep bond between a father and son. Sharing personal anecdotes, Sandy brilliantly captures the nuance of his father’s comedic style as he reminisces about a lifetime together, including the 10 years they spent touring on the road, sharing stories and memories from the beginning days of Buddy’s career, to his skyrocketing success as a movie star and night club entertainer, to being the most sought after comedian of his day – to his rule breaking, fearless comedic truth, which broke barriers paving the way for today’s comedians.
