Not The Bobcat You Remember: From Zed To World's Greatest Dad
By Michael Edward Miller

Chattanooga, TN – Bobcat Goldthwait is coming to Chattanooga on December 16th and 17th for 3 shows at the Vaudeville Cafe. If the only thing you remember about Goldthwait is that he played Zed, a howling, hyperactive character in the Police Academy movies, then you've missed the best part of his career.
These days, Goldthwait is passionate about writing and directing. He makes independent films--his most successful so far has been World's Greatest Dad, which starred Academy Award winner Robin Williams. The film scored an impressive 89% approval rating on RottenTomatoes.com and was a hit at the Sundance Film Festival. Goldthwait's other recent films include Sleeping Dogs Lie and God Bless America.
