rydellBobby Rydell, one of the original three "Golden Boys" with Frankie Avalon and Fabian, will headline the two-part show. He has been an entertainment hit from the time he made his debut in the late '50's as a rock and roll teen idol and appearing on the popular American Bandstand. He has played starring roles in such hit films as "Bye Bye Birdie" and "West Side Story" and has appeared on the Red Skelton and Ed Sullivan shows. In the world of recordings, he has earned nearly three dozen rankings in the top 40 and is among the top five of all single artists from his era.

teterJim Teter and his presidential dummies is the other part of the show. He is a comedian ­ and much more. He keeps everybody roaring with his topical humor, political satire, and comedic ventriloquism. He begins with rapid-fire, stand-up comedy, concluding with his classic performance with life-size presidential dummies.
