I guess I'm an old fuddy duddy but these so-called name entertainers have not impressed me. Red Buttons comes to mind. I'd rather they put the money back in the food budget.

I totally agree with Frank's comment: "these so-called name entertainers have not impressed me. Red Buttons comes to mind. I'd rather they put the money back in the food budget.".

The "entertainers" named aren't very entertaining, in my opinion.

Maybe in the olden days but not on board when I saw him. He was pretty pathetic with a very short, predictable routine.
