GOULET'S SHOW BROUGHT A TOUCH OF CLASS TO THE STRIP

 “As age takes its toll, many of Goulet's peers are rearranging their charts to minimize hard singing and/or padding sets with a lot of jokes and crowd banter to cover their fading vocal abilities. But Goulet can still open his mouth and let rip an "Oh nooooo" that can blow away his 18-piece backing band. When it comes to that cake-in-the-rain part of "MacArthur Park," Wayne Newton makes it rain in the showroom. Goulet made the walls quake.” 

 

 

Robert Goulet was constantly reinventing himself and his remarkable sense of humor, his ability to laugh at himself has always endeared him to his audiences.

 

“You have to have humor, and be able to laugh at yourself, said Goulet. One of the lines in Man Of La Mancha spoken of the Duke in the play by Cervantes/ Don Quixote is, ‘He carries his self importance as if afraid of breaking it’ amuses me immensely.  No one should take himself that seriously.”

THE MIAMI HERALD 1966

"Robert Goulet... there ain’t nobody like him, anywhere. 

Goulet is a burst, or rather one long blast, of unbridled singing power that bears the punch of several freight trains moving down the track at full throttle.”
