Big City Broadway has been asked to produce a movie documentary about Don Rickles and Bob Newhart and part of the proceeds will go to develop this camp. We hope to launch the camp in 2020/2021!
When thinking of comedic legends, two individuals come to mind immediately: Don Rickles and Bob Newhart. The two broke boundaries and helped shape the American comedy landscape into what it is today. Despite their cultural differences, and Don’s colorful comedic style, these two had a decades long friendship. Their love and generosity shown to others is something that will continue to influence many. In a time where so much divisiveness, hate, and uncertainty exists, we can look at Bob and Don’s relationship and career to find inspiration for love, kindness, and friendship. Their generosity is why all of the proceeds from Rickles & Newhart: A Love Story will go to the LA Children’s Hospital and nationwide performance arts camps for kids.
