Telly Savalas has been granted a limited time to come down and spread his message on what's amiss in today's world and tips on how we can set things right. But because, as he puts it, "I don't have the pull I used to." The only venue he could nail down was a mere forty minutes at the iO West Lounge. This didn't seem to discourage Mr. Savalas, "I could make forty minutes purr." And he did as he proceeded to enlighten, entertain and most importantly school us in the art of love, passion, and first-class no-nonsense masculinity.
"Telly's back so be good for teacher." as Mr. Savalas puts it so aptly.
Although I am sad he couldn't be around with us longer I do have good news for all my close friends. As I drifted off to sleep my father's ghost seemed to whisper in my ear, "Hey, I hope some of that stuff Telly laid down sunk in, but just in case it didn't he'll be back one last time, same place tomorrow night, Sunday, June 26th, at 8pm. Make sure those candy-asses you call your friends don't miss it, I'm sure they'll be glad you twisted their arm. Oh and one more thing before I take off, I'm proud of ya kid, you did good."

BTW, I am not writing this because I got free tickets, aka "industry comps" as a bribe. No, I paid full price and would gladly do it again. But for those who aren't as much a gambler as I and would prefer the odds stacked a little more in their favor then I suggest you "Like" the "Telly Savalas Live" facebook fanpage which entitles you to special VIP discount $5 tickets!
