On November 13, Robert Klein comes back to Boston to recieve the Boston Comedy Festival's Lifetime Achievement Award. Klein has had nine one-hour HBO specials, and he's still going strong. Klein is as influential as any comic, perhaps more quietly so than Richard Pryor or George Carlin, but responsible for inspiring a legion of comics to take the mic.
Klein is at the Wilbur Theatre on the 13 with the Boston Comedy Festival Finals. FunnyGrownHere.com readers can get half-price tickets by going to this link and entering the word "COMEDY."
