Walt Willey - 'Jackson Montgomery' of ABC's 'All My Children' comes to Surflight Theater, Beach Haven, for an evening of comedy on August 3rd.
July 17, 2009 - PRLog -- Daytime Television’s Walt Willey comes to Surflight Theatre for one night of Comedy on August 3rd.  To return this fall to star in Neil Simon’s ‘The Odd Couple’ (October 21 – Nov 1)
After numerous Off-Broadway productions, including "Dust Off" with Dan Lauria, and stints on NBC's Another World as "James La Russo", and "Joe Novak" on ABC's Ryan's Hope,
Walt joined the cast of ABC's All My Children in 1987, originating the role of lawyer  "Jackson Montgomery".  Walt celebrates his nineteenth year on this popular daytime drama.

Walt branched out into stand-up comedy in 1990 entertaining  across the country,  headlining at such famous comedy clubs as "Caroline's" in New York, "Zanie's" in Chicago, and the "Comedy Store"in California.  He continues to tour nationally. In 2006, Walt raised many eyebrows with the release of “Wild and Willey”, his first comedy DVD.  For those who have known him from his portrayal of   “Jackson Montgomery” and his on-air hosting stints, this DVD was a bit of a shock.  Walt invokes both of his major influences, Richard Pryor and Robin Williams, with his take on life, love, sex, kids, and celebrity.

Walt co-hosted The 20th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards, with Susan Lucci.  He also co-hosted the 1992 Ford Supermodel of the World with Beverly Johnson, and again in 1993 with Rachel Hunter.  Willey was co-host of ABC's coverage of the Tournament of Roses Parade in 1994, 1995, and again in 1997.  Walt also hosted Disney's "A Magical Time in a Magical Place".

At Disney’s Super Soap Weekend, Walt has hosted the “Talk Show”, “Street Jam”, the game show “Super Soap Spin” and was the only person besides his friend Meredith Veira, to be allowed to host the on-property “Who Wants To Be A Millionaire-Play It!”

Comedy Show at 8pm,  Tickets $30  call:609-492-9477
