Where is Robert Klein?

    He was one of the smartest stand-ups, he had radio and TV shows, he acted, he wrote a book, was an exceptional talk show guest.

    Haven't seen him anywhere in what seems like years. I guess he's probably pushing 70 now, which may have something to do with it.

    Anyone know if he's still working?

    Seems like I was surfing recently (within the last 4 months) and saw what appeared to be a fairly recent Robert Klein special.

    I couldn't hit the button quickly enough, but there it was.

    His memoir (The Amorous Busboy of Decatur Avenue) was quite a good read.

    I wouldn't expect him to play the Des Moines Funny Bone on a random Friday, but Newhart and Cosby still perform in upscale venues in bigger cities.

    I'm sure that's it. Why else would you take bookings at a dump like Carnegie Hall?

    I saw Cosby when he played my hometown a couple years ago...much closer to the Des Moines Funny Bone than an upscale venue in a bigger city. I was shocked he was there.
