THE CLODHOPPER MONOLOGUES with Michael Perry
THE CLODHOPPER MONOLOGUES with Michael Perry.
Mike takes to the stage with a microphone and a passel of stories that range well beyond the pages of this books. Whether discussing vicious chickens, homeless guinea pigs, long underwear for ladies, or getting your feelings hurt by the New York Times, Perry moves easily from the heartfelt to hilarious in an easygoing performance come have called "country stand-up."
From a review of the Clodhopper Monologues:
If you read his books, you will laugh…If you see him in person, you will laugh even harder.
Perry walked on stage in a T-shirt, jeans, and work boots, with a few pages of leader notes taped to the floor at his feet from which to jog his memory, and told stories for an hour before taking a break, and then came back 15 minutes later for another 45. Nearly two hours of "The Clodhopper Monologues," as they were titled, described as "country standup." He talked about life on a farm in a very small Wisconsin town (and whether the word is pronounced "manoo-er" or "ma-nerr"), his job as a volunteer firefighter and registered nurse, his writing process and ties to New York City, involving agents, editors and publishers.
While he may have some big-time connections, he remains genuinely and sincerely small-town.
