Owners of the Hollywood Cafe with Henny, Martha, Tom and Maxine
□ Henny Youngman
Last Tuesday (May 11), Jim Tumage and
the people at the Laff Stop hosted a benefit
for the Houston Hunger Coalition.
No matter what your problems, it helps
to remember that someone else has other
ones. You can lose yourself in them. That
kind of escapism is the basis of soap operas. If you choose real people with real
problems, you can also do something real
to help them.
In some future day, our further advances in space will be a fitting tribute to the
Challenger crew. Our advances in medicine will have defeated our immunological
foe. Hopefully, our help to the hungry will
have given us friends who can live to see
that day with us.
And no matter what you have a lot of,
there is someone in dire need of it.
Jim Turnage's It's a Piede of Cake bakery and Life of the Party catering service
have become so successful that he's now
opening the Hollywood Cafe in the River
Oaks shopping center. His very success in
the food industry brought home to him the
fact that there are right now a lot of unsuccessful people starving in Houston
through no fault of their own. It's just the
economy. Hence, last Tuesday's gala.
Headlining the entertainment was
Henry Youngman. His humor, of course, is
familiar to all. His classic line is "Take my
wife—please." I was surprised at his s_2e.
This gently self-deprecating comedian is a
tall man with wide shoulders, built like a
Bill Nash and his band provided the
music, including his song about the Challenger crew—Seven New Stars. This song
is also in their new album, a portion ofthe
sales of which will go to the Challenger
memorial ftind. Artist Lauri Whitehead,
who is painting the official tribute painting, was also there. For a while, she
seemed to forget which charity's benefit
she was at.
Marianne Pendino did a couple ofthe
wittily wicked satirical songs. Steve Garfinkle and some ofthe Main Street Theater
gang were there with sketches from the
Irving Mittelman Show, an original talk
show spoof which will open there in July.
Magical Mat Alan did some real magic,
swallowing razor blades as his finale.
(Don't try that at home, kids!)
Throughout the evening, local celebrities were brought on-stage to sign the
backs of director's chairs. These will be
used at the Hollywood Cafe.
Marvin Zindler's glitz adds sparkle to
any room. Maxine Messanger pointed out
that Dave Ward was in his "Andy Warhol
suit." Above the waist, he was as we know
him from the screen, but below it he was
wearing jeans. One secret of his comfortable geniality is now out in the open!
If you weren't there, you missed a good
time, but you can still do your part for the
problem. A fund has been established for
Houston's Hungry at Liberty Bank.
