“Richard Skipper is a BRILLIANT host and entertainer. I would do his show ANYTIME. He should be all over TV, film, and cabaret clubs constantly. He KNOWS how to bring out your best! And he’s NICE about it all. I love him.” -Anita Gillette
“You never know who you might see there and what might happen! Richard Skipper is the kind of performer and host who has you grinning even before he actually does anything and, when he does, it’s uphill from there! A true Broadway style artist, he fashions fascinating and fun material and performs it with great joie de vivre as well as craft.” -Beth Fowler
Here’s What The Critics Are Saying!
“The ongoing series Richard Skipper Celebrates is indeed itself something to celebrate. The ever-ebullient singing host— who knows that variety (shows) makes for the spice of life — brings his spicy comments and entertainment galore to any stage he bounces onto. With talented musical guests to gush with (and over), expect a ‘sweet, comic Valentine’ of a show in February as the cheery one cheers the day of hearts and flowers and what’s sure to be his own happy birthday filled with contagious joy.” –Rob Lester – CabaretScenes.org
“If there’s two things Richard Skipper knows about, it’s how to throw a party and how to entertain an audience on any topic!” -Bart Greenberg – NiteLifeExchange.com
“A facile interviewer and master at off the cuff quips!” -Marilyn Lester – Theater Pizzazz
