Dustin Diamond, Scott Record-Las Vegas Backstage Talk w/Comedian Michele LaFong

Sept. 22, 2011  6pm-7pm PST 1230AM in LV & The Web

Actor/Comedian Dustin Diamond, “Screech,” returns in-studio on LVBST Radio Show with Comedian Michele LaFong.

Known to many as the nerdy character Screech, Dustin Diamond began playing the quirky role in 1988 on the series Good Morning, Miss Bliss. When the show’s characters graduated from middle to high school, the show came to be known as Saved by the Bell, and Diamond became more well-known than ever. The series ran until 1993, and after it was over, Diamond signed up for the spin-off, Saved by the Bell: The New Class. This time, Screech was part of the school administration instead of the student body, but the character was still iconic. So iconic, in fact, that when The New Class finished its run in 1999, Diamond had a hard time finding new roles. He’d played Screech for more than a decade, and audiences had a hard time seeing him play anyone else. He appeared on reality shows like Celebrity Boxing and The Weakest Link, and in 2007, he also appeared on the show Celebrity Fit Club.

You can catch Dustin live at The Orleans
Big Al’s Comedy Club, Sept.15th – Oct. 1st
Thursday – 1 Show – 7:30pm / Friday & Saturday – 2 Shows Per Night – 7:30pm & 9:30pm
