Losing Robin Williams on Aug. 11, 2014 shocked and saddened everyone. The man had a rare talent that could not be matched.

Comedian and master impressionist Roger Kabler has been perfecting his Robin Williams act for years with uncanny results.

Don’t miss this chance to celebrate and pay tribute to the comedic genius of the late, great Robin Williams in a live show starring Kabler and featuring Bill Kirchenbauer from “Mork & Mindy,” “Just the Ten of Us,” "Airplane" and more.

"Robin: The Ultimate Robin Williams Tribute Experience" comes to The Ridgefield Playhouse on Friday, Sept. 14 at 8 p.m, part of Barts Tree Service Comedy Series.

A portion of the proceeds from the show will be donated to suicide prevention organizations.

The performance goes to great lengths to respect Robin Williams' memory and celebrate his legacy.

For tickets, which cost $30, call the box office at 203-438-5795 , or click here: ridgefieldplayhouse.org . .

Visit Bareburger at 38 Danbury Road in Ridgefield) for dinner the night of the show and enjoy a complimentary glass of house wine or draft beer with your entrée when you display your ticket.

Media partner for this event is I95, The Home of Rock and Roll.

Roger Kabler is a true renaissance man. Along with being one of the finest comedy impressionists in the country, he is a talented actor and portrait artist. He served as the Zima spokesman in national television commercials in the 1990s. He was a regular on the final Carol Burnett series in 1991 and also starred in his own NBC sit-com “Rhythm and Blues.”

His impressions of Robert De Niro and John Travolta are equally uncanny, but watching him perform as Robin Williams one cannot help but feel at times you are watching the comedic master himself.

The Ridgefield Playhouse is a non-profit performing arts center located at 80 East Ridge, parallel to Main Street in Ridgefield.
