Starring

RICH LITTLE

Hollywood Legend, Television Star, and Las Vegas Headliner

And the man with a million stories about Las Vegas and the stars that played here.


Little's best-known continuing TV series was The Kopycats, hour-long segments of The ABC Comedy Hour, first broadcast in 1972. Taped in England, these comedy-variety shows consisted entirely of celebrity impersonations, with the actors in full costume and makeup for every sketch. The cast included Little, Frank Gorshin,Marilyn Michaels , George Kirby, British comedian Joe Baker,Fred Travalena, and Peter Goodwright.


Infamous for his skewering of political figures, Little has charmed, amused, intrigued and gotten the best of politicians from here to his native Canada. He entertained at both of Reagan’s presidential inaugurations and got to know the Reagan family very well during that time. President Reagan used to tell Little, “You do me better than I do.”

A master mimic of more than 200 voices, Little continues to impress throughout the world, with a constant touring schedule of the United States, Canada and abroad.

A professed classic movie buff, he’s particularly fond of doing Alan Ladd (his childhood hero), Gary Cooper and Clark Gable, but Little has also latched on to Baby Boomer-friendly characters, such as Edith Bunker, Kermit the Frog, Robin Leach and Dr. Ruth Westheimer, to name a few.

“An impression is what you think a person sounds like. It could be an exaggeration or a cartoon. It’s your impression. I think of an impersonation as more of an exact copy. Knowing the person personally is not important; it’s knowing the speech patterns and mannerisms [in order] to imitate the person the way the public sees him.”

Some of his favorite current impressions are of stars Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sylvester Stallone, Jack Nicholson and Clint Eastwood. “They’re easy to do,” he says. “They are larger than life.”

2014 Jazz Vocalist of the Year

TOSCHA COMEAUX


Quincy Jones speaks of how rare it is to find a young person who sings as if they have a lifetimes worth of experience. An "old soul" in a young body is the way Mr. Jones describes such a person. It is this description that defines a singer that makes every song they sing meaningful.

Trained classically, Toscha

has performed & traveled

with the Connecticut Opera

in their productions of "Porgy

and Bess" and "Rigoletto",

and she also performs with

Orlando Philharmonic

Orchestra. While Toscha

enjoys having the ability

to sing "Classical" music,

her desire is Jazz and

Rhythm and Blues. Some artists that have influenced her sound are: Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan, Dee Dee Bridgewater, Stevie Wonder, Chaka Khan, Anita Baker, and Aretha Franklin. Toscha has been fortunate enough to share the stage with such greats as Lou Rawls, Ray Charles, Diana Ross, Max Roach, and the late jazz great Nat Adderly.
