- CHARITY BENEFIT
“MY VIEW” – Stephen Sorokoff
Laughter, along with an active sense of humor, may help protect you against a heart attack, according to a recent study by cardiologists at the University of Maryland Medical Center in Baltimore. The study, which is the first to indicate that laughter may help prevent heart disease, found that people with heart disease were 40 percent less likely to laugh in a variety of situations compared to people of the same age without heart disease.
From the moment she walks out on stage, gorgeous Kelly Clinton does everything she can to change that beautiful face into comic characters which keep her audience laughing and smiling for the entire show. You even smile when she sings “serious”, but then it’s the smile of admiration for someone who can change gears so effectively and also become a superb chanteuse. Her act “Freckles & 80-year-old-Bones” is a devilishly funny biographical rant. One of the heartiest laughers and smilers in the audience was husband Clint Holmes, who just finished a successful run at Cafe Carlyle.
I know Clint has a “good heart” (in many ways), and I’m sure his EKG must also be great because of Kelly. Her marvelous impersonation ability and natural sense of humor must fill every day with laughter in the Holmes’ household. If you want to do your heart some good, JOG over to the Metropolitan. Kelly is there until May 11th.
In addition you are going to hear some great music from her back-up band led by pianist arranger Jeff Neiman.
