Here’s Wayne and Alex….
In 2007 Newton revealed on Larry King Live how he personally confronted Johnny Carson about jokes the The Tonight Show host was making about him.
Newton said he thought Johnny Carson was a mean-spirited human being.
And there are people that he has hurt that people will never know about. And for some reason at some point, he decided to turn that kind of negative attention toward me. And I refused to have it.”
In 2008, Newton received a Woodrow Wilson Award for Public Service. The Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, a national memorial to President Wilson, commemorates “the ideals and concerns of Woodrow Wilson.” The award honors leaders who have given back to their communities.
Beginning October 14, 2009, he began performing his newest show “Once Before I Go” at the Tropicana in Las Vegas.
Newton performed at the Tropicana for a limited time only – approximately six months. Newton currently performs in various venues worldwide, on a touring basis.
