One of the long running and inspiring cabaret series is credited to Bobbie Horowitz who has been honoring people over age 50 thru 80+, those who have created something new and fabulous in their lives. She is the recipient of a MAC Award two years in a row as ‘Best Emcee.’

Bobbie is a songwriter, performer, producer who has demonstrated that age is relative…. people can begin new careers, pick up old ones and achieve skill and artistic triumph at any age. She’s also a one woman cheering squad seen regularly at the cabarets and clubs in New York for veteran performers as well as the newcomers.

The latest “It’s Just a Number” will air on Monday January 29th at 7 pm at Don’t Tell Mama spotlighting three honorees who have never given up on their dreams and passions.
