Do you love the ’80s?
Tony joins forces with The Nu Wavers to take on the ’80s. During the first set Tony will take you through his personal love/hate relationship with the fashion, style and music of the most ridiculous decade in memory.
For the last 1/40th of a millennium, Tony Starlight has been entertaining Portland audiences with his unique brand of music and comedy. This fall, Tony will pay special tribute to himself, celebrating 25 years of his popular music and comedy show.
“I can’t believe people aren’t making a bigger deal out of this monumental achievement,” deadpanned Starlight. “Building a 25-year career with a marginal singing voice, community theater leading man looks, and basically the same three jokes, has not been easy. Where’s the media? Where’s my parade? I could be upset, but instead I chose to rent the Alberta Rose Theatre and do something about it.”
Through music and monologues, Starlight will take the audience on a journey that began at venues like the 1201 Club, The Gypsy and Jimmy Mak’s in 1993, through his own venue Tony Starlight’s Supperclub & Lounge, and right up to the present. Starlight has hired a 10-piece band to back him up and special guests will join throughout the performance.
The ingredients of the Tony Starlight Show are simple–top-notch musicianship, with a band featuring many of the city’s finest musicians, impressions of such musical icons as Dean Martin, Neil Diamond, Bob Seger, Morrissey, and many more, song parodies like “I Can’t Get These Jeans on Anymore” and “Say, Has Anybody Seen That Creep Axl Rose?”, and rarely performed pop culture favorites like Schoolhouse Rock and the themes to Friends, Happy Days and The Partridge Family.

Ernie Kovacs once quipped, “Television is a medium, so called because it is neither rare nor well-done.” This may be true, but TV THEME SONGS ARE GREAT! Through music, monologues and sing-alongs, Tony will take you on a journey through the wonderful world of television and the era of classic theme songs. “The Greatest American Hero”, “Mary Tyler Moore”, “Wonder Woman”, “The Love Boat”, “Cheers” and “Family Ties (Without Us)”. Classic instrumentals like the themes from “The Pink Panther”, “Star Trek”, “Mission Impossible” and “Hawaii 5-0”.
