REGENT THEATRE 7 Medford Street, Arlington 781-646-4849 www.RegentTheatre.com MORT SAHL LIVE: AN EVENING WITH A COMEDY LEGEND -- Au- gust 22 and August 24.. Crowned as leading the new breed of modem co- medians by Time magazine in 1960, Mort Sahl was the first entertainer ever to appear on its cover. Before comedy clubs existed, Sahl began performing at the Hungry I music club in San Francisco in the early 1950s. He differed from other comedians, appearing in casual clothing rather than a suit, skewer-ing popular poli- ticians such as Eisenhower, Joe McCarthy and JFK. Sahl's approach is energetic, tangential, and' deep and wide in both social and political scopes, inspiring Woody Allen, George Carlin and countless other comedi- ans. A 1955 performance with Dave Brnbeck was recorded and released (without Sahl's permission), selling as Mort Sahl At Sunset, and recently recognized by the Library of Congress as the first stand-up comedy record album. When Kennedy was assassi- nated in 1963, Sahl regularly targeted the government's official Warren Commission Report during his rou- tines, resulting in the loss of much of Hollywood's support, while maintain- ing audience popularity with college tours and a best-selling book, Heart- land. Sahl is the longest active per- forming American social satirist, span- ning sixty years. CASINO BALLROOM 169 Ocean Boulevard HamptonBeach, NH BILL COSBY -- August 16. Over the past century, few entertainers have achieved the legendary status of William H. Cosby Jr. His successes span five decades and virtually all media, remarkable accomplishments for a kid who emerged from humble beginnings in a Philly project. In the 1960s, his stand-up act was a coast- to-coast sensation, spawning a string of hilarious, best-selling comedy albums, which went on to win eight Gold Records, five Platinum records and five Grammy Awards. His role on TV's I Spy made him the first African- American to co-star in a dramatic series, breaking television's racial barrier and winning three Emmy Awards. In the 1980s, he again rocked the television world with the The Cosby Show, a gentle, whimsical and hugely successful series that single- handedly revived the family sitcom (and rescued NBC). With hit movies like Uptown Saturday N/ght and best- selling books like Fatherhood, Bill Cosby is quite simply a national trea- sure with the unique ability to touch people's hearts.

Before they became the most vis- ible flamenco duo of the early 2000s, guitarists Rodrigo Sanchez and Gabriela Quintero bonded over heavy metal while growing up in Mexico City. They combined their talents for a time in the metal group Tierra Acida, play- ing around D.F. in the roughest clubs the city had to offer. In 2004 Rodrigo y Gabriela became the newest fixture of the world music circuit, known for their nimble-fingered guitar work and diverse background (few flamenco guitarists could boast a background in metal music). Their third album, Rodrigo y Gabriela, was released in 2006 and debuted atop the Irish charts, beating out Arctic Monkeys for the number one spot. They contin- ued to tour, making their way through Japan and America, and 11: I I expanded their discography upon its 2009 release.
