Actor Bill Oberst, Jr. returns to The Strand to perform his celebrated production of “Lewis Grizzard: In His Own Words”, a loving tribute to the Southern writer and humorist. Oberst performs selections of Grizzard’s best-loved stories and jokes in this show that Grizzard’s family says is the closest thing to seeing the late great spokesman of the south onstage again. Lewis Grizzard was the most widely syndicated columnist until his death at age 47, appearing in 450 daily newspapers. Grizzard’s best-selling books include five number one bestsellers on the New York Times bestseller list: Elvis Is Dead And I Don’t Feel So Good Myself, Shoot Low Boys – They’re Riding Shetland Ponies, When My Love Returns From The Ladies Room Will I Be Too Old To Care? and Don’t Bend Over In The Garden Granny – You Know Them Taters Got Eyes.
