Press Release (ePRNews.com) - NEW YORK - Mar 12, 2018 - Mike King, aka “The Fifth Dentist,” is bringing his father Sid King back to life. Written as a love letter to his dad, Mike will perform his show based on his life story as a dentist, a stand-up comedian and the son of a nightclub owner.

The Fifth Dentist in Search of Sid’s Treasure is directed by Broadway veteran and award-winning director Jonathan Cerullo and features New York actress Mollie Heckerling as “Shirley,” the dental assistant. The role of Shirley will be played by multiple actresses throughout its run.
Mike King has been living in New York City for many years working as a pediatric dentist while performing stand-up. He has appeared on Comedy Central; even opening for comic giant Ray Romano, but it was his upbringing in Denver that had the biggest impact on his life.

For 35 years, Sid King was the proud owner of “Sid King’s Crazy Horse Bar,” the world-famous burlesque house that lived on East Colfax Avenue. Sid was the infectious host who mingled with guests and told jokes on stage while the crowd roared with laughter. Everyone from Elvis Presley to Clint Eastwood came to the Crazy Horse – even prompting Eastwood to film a scene from his movie Every Which Way But Loose there.
