Brian Hoffman is Going to Vincennes to Pay Tribute to Red Skelton

Saturday June 12, 2010 marks the second annual Red Skelton Festival with a “Parade of 1000 Clowns” in Vincennes Indiana. The parade is followed by a “Paint the Town Red” Festival, with fun, good food, entertainment, inflatables and games for kids.

Vincennes, IN, April 20, 2010 --( Brian Hoffman’s celebrity impersonation of Red Skelton has been enjoyed by thousands of people who visit Las Vegas. Now the people of Red’s hometown of Vincennes Indiana will feel the love Brian has for “America’s Favorite Clown”.

Brian Hoffman started doing comedy over 15 years ago. Never in his wildest dreams did he think he would end up in Las Vegas performing in his own afternoon show as Red Skelton.

When asked, “How did you ever decide to become a Red Skelton impersonator?” The answer is always the same. Brian smiles and says, “It wasn’t my idea, I believe it was His.”

“At first I just thought they were pulling my leg when strangers would tell me I reminded them of Red Skelton.” says Brian, “But when enough people tell you something, you tend to start believing in it!”

After hearing about the Red Skelton Festival in June, Brian’s wife insisted that he take a week off from performing in Las Vegas to go see the home town of the man he impersonates.

The week will be packed full of things to do like tours of the oldest church in Indiana, Basilica of St. Francis Xavier or “The Old Cathedral”, George Rogers Clark National Historical Park, the Abe Lincoln Trail, Vincennes State Historic Sites, “Grouseland”, mansion and museum of William Henry Harrison, 9th U.S. President and the Indiana Military Museum and a self guided tour of Red Skelton’s boyhood home.
