Salient: Victoria University Students' Paper. Vol. 26, No. 9. 1963.

Shelley Berman Cut Rate

Shelley Berman Cut Rate

Shelley Berman will visit Wellington on August 26 and 27.

In an era of sick comics and political satirists, he has pulled off the extraordinary trick of winning wide public appeal and the respect of intellectuals as well, simply by being funny about people.

That doesn't mean Berman is without barbs; but basically his humour revolves around the embarrassments and foibles of ordinary people.

The late Charles Laughton summed up the quality recently with the comment: "We have been living Berman situations, and we have been around unmistakable Berman men and women for years and did not know it. We love your world and you have made us all welcome to it."

Because of the strong campus following for Berman's humour in the United States, Mr. Harry M. Miller, who is directing the New-Zealand tour, has decided to grant a special concession rate for university students here to see him.

Tickets will be available to Victoria University students for the opening night (August 26) at 17/6—cutting the regular price of 35/6 by more than half.
