February 4, 2021 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm
Lewis Grizzard was the most widely syndicated columnist in America for 15 years until his death in 1994. Actor Bill Oberst, Jr. has stepped into Grizzard’s shoes more than 1,000 times in the last decade. Oberst’s portrayal of the Southern writer and humorist is a one-man show authorized by Grizzard’s family, which says it is the closest thing to seeing the late, great southern writer onstage since Grizzard’s death. The two-act performance features Grizzard’s best-loved stories and jokes, along with some poignant and funny readings from his books and newspaper columns.
