Oh my goodness! The Paul Lynde Show is now playing in the Windows Showroom at Bally’s Las Vegas. Written and performed by actor, writer, voice artist, comedian and producer Michael Airington, and featuring voiceovers from Master of The Hollywood Squares himself, Peter Marshall, the legendary comedian has been brought back to life in a one-man show based on his 1976 live theater production of the same name. 

Using Lynde’s own words, performance pieces and comedic monologues, Airington brings to life the actor’s comic genius, taking the audience on a fun and laugh-filled trip through the highs and lows of Lynde's turbulent life. From his childhood as an overweight kid to his big-screen debut in New Faces of 1952, through his Broadway turn in Bye Bye Birdie to his 13 legendary years as the center square on The Hollywood Squares, Airington makes the man all the more unforgettable to a whole new generation of audiences and fans alike.

Airington has performed in character as Lynde since 2004, with several sold-out and critically-acclaimed one-man shows in Los Angeles, San Diego and Palm Springs, before deciding to bring the show to Las Vegas. Throughout the years, many of Lynde’s friends have helped Airington perfect the character, including Peter Marshall, Cloris Leachman, Kaye Ballard, Karen Valentine, Jan Forbes and the late Andy Williams. Additionally, the show is produced with the full approval and cooperation of the estate of Paul Lynde. 

“This Las Vegas show has been 13 years in the making and I am so excited it is finally happening,” said Airington. “I first performed in this city when I opened for Mel Tillis when I was only 15 years old. I always knew that someday, I would be back with my own show. The Paul Lynde Show will bring existing fans back to the glamour and style of a bygone era where he was on their TV sets every night, but also resonate with new fans.”    

The inimitable “master of the slow burn,” Lynde is best remembered as one of America’s most honored comedians, and was one of the most sought after popular stars on network TV during the ‘60s and ‘70s. His witty, wisecracking one-liners and novel line delivery made him one of Hollywood's funniest and best loved entertainers. He starred in such hit television series as The Perry Como Show and as Uncle Arthur in Bewitched, and such movies as Son of Flubber, Send Me No Flowers, and as the voice of Templeton the rat in the beloved Charlotte’s Web. 

The Paul Lynde Show performs Wednesday through Monday at 2 p.m., a time slot previously occupied by “Tony Sacca’s Vegas the Story,” which recently closed following the untimely passing of prominent Las Vegas entertainer/producer, Tony Sacca. 

“It will be impossible for me to ever fill the shoes of Tony Sacca, who made such a huge mark on the Las Vegas entertainment community for more than three decades. It is my honor to follow in his footsteps and perform in the same showroom,” Airington continued. 

Airington has been creating and inhabiting a multitude of memorable characters and voices since he was a young boy, first gaining national notice as a teen. While some of his greatest triumphs have occurred as his alter ego “Ester Goldberg,” Airington’s versatility, quick wit and talent take center stage in any production. He has the unique ability to evoke beloved stars of the past, while always keeping it fresh and relevant—and skewering the pompous along the way. 

Airington had always wanted to do a show about Paul Lynde so he created An Evening with Paul Lynde - a tribute to an early comic inspiration. This show received outstanding reviews when it played in various clubs and theaters in Hollywood as well as accolades from former Lynde co-stars from The Hollywood Squares such as Rose Marie, Cloris Leachman and host Peter Marshall, who actually contributes his voice to the show. He later revised the show as Oh My Goodness … it’s Paul Lynde, which recently completed a successful run at the Hudson Backstage Theatre in Los Angeles. 

Airington began his career as a teen performing in clubs around the country as the opening act for country singer Mel Tillis, and later opened for Brenda Lee, Tony Martin, John Denver, Jackie Vernon and the legendary Rosemary Clooney. Other stage work includes his successful revue Michael and the Maids, which included impressions, stand-up and songs. 

Recently, Airington had a guest role for two seasons on The Suite Life on Deck (Disney Channel), the latest in a line of appearances that began with roles on Archie Bunker’s Place (CBS), One Day at a Time (CBS) and The Jeffersons (CBS). Other projects include a recent dramatic, starring role in an indie film Hollywood, je’taime, an ABC pilot with Tillis, a recurring role on General Hospital (ABC) and as a spokesperson for Mattel Toys. 

Always funny, always unexpected, Airington puts his own unique spin on every role he takes.
