Bobcat Goldthwait to make rare appearance in Chicopee - Reminder Publications

CHICOPEE – Bobcat Goldthwait is making a rare appearance when he performs at the Cabot Comedy Club in downtown Chicopee on Sept. The standup comedian who is very busy with his second career as a film and television director told Reminder Publications he usually just performs either in New York City of Los Angeles these days where he is a very active director. Goldthwait, whose last film was a documentary about Boston-based comedian Barry Crimmins, “Call Me Lucky,” said there was a period when he didn’t perform in clubs. Goldthwait became a star in the comedy scene in the 1980s and ‘90s with a persona that was arresting to watch. He explained he started stand-up at age 15, traveling to Boston at age 18 to appear in clubs there and then at age 20 he made his first appearance on David Letterman’s TV show. The persona on stage was coupled with Goldthwait’s envelope-pushing humor that could be very dark and political. The result was a success with Goldthwait headlining his own comedy special as well as being an actor in popular films such as three of the “Police Academy” franchise, “One Crazy Summer,” “Tapeheads,” and a starring role in “Hot to Trot. I didn’t like being stuck doing that [the character],” he said. He continued an active career as a voice actor for animation and started directing television shows and films. He began directing in 1991 with “Shakes the Clown,” a film in which he starred as a children’s performer with a drinking problem in a surreal town where clowns were a major industry. He recalled with a laugh his cinematographer said, “You’re filming everything you’re not suppose to put in a movie. Goldthwait wrote the film as well. He said his career as a director would have been better off if he had done “a teen comedy or something with broad appeal around a character people know. Although he had been told that “Shakes” was a “really angry movie,” he said his intention was to create a parody of standup comedians. His directing career was stalled until 2000 when Jimmy Kimmell asked him to direct segments of his hit Comedy Central show “The Man Show. “That got things going again,” Goldthwait said. He directed segments of the acclaimed “Chappelle Show” and came back to film with the indie comedy “Sleeping Dogs Lie” in 2006. “That got. Source: thereminder.com
