An Evening with Mark Twain

October 23 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

An Evening with Mark Twain

Featuring Stephen Hollen, humorist, storyteller, and performer, Dayton.

Wednesday, October 23, 7:30 p.m.

Samuel Clemens (1835-1910) — better known by his pen name “Mark Twain” — was one of the greatest writers and humorists in American history.  He is perhaps most well known as the author of The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.  Many have tried to portray him but few have been as successful as award-winning humorist, storyteller, writer, and performer Stephen Hollen.  Stephen grew up in Eastern Kentucky where he honed his southern humor and learned the fine art of storytelling.  Considered by many to be one of today’s premiere Appalachian humorists, he first became a “Twainiac” at an early age when he began reading Twain’s books.  It was simply serendipity that led him to impersonate Mark Twain.  After hearing many times that he looked like Twain, someone finally told him, “You know… you like to tell stories, you look like Twain and you love his wit… why not be Twain?”  And so much to everyone’s enjoyment, he did.  Please join us for a fascinating evening with the great Mark Twain as only Stephen Hollen can portray him.
