Brochu, who will share photos and videos from his own collection during the evening, said in a previous statement, "There would be no Broadway without these guys who supported the great stars and got the laughs without getting the girl. I began my own career as a character man at a time when I got to know these men and learn from them. David Burns was like a second father to me and I grew up backstage hanging out with him and Phil Silvers, Zero Mostel, Jack Gilford and Charles Nelson Reilly. They were amazing, dear, funny men and I don't want them to ever be forgotten."
Character Man is aiming for an Off-Broadway run next year after Brochu has wrapped up commitments to his Zero Hour tour.
Jeramiah Peay and Steve Schalchlin are producing the Triad Theatre performance.
