Whiteside Theatre presents Pot Luck written by Patrick F. McManus starring Tim Behrens
Patrick F. McManus, one of the most popular humor writers in the country, has penned 23 titles which have sold more than 6 million copies. Five of his short humor collections have made the top 10 of the NY Times Bestseller's list. His five one-man shows, all performed by Behrens, have played to more than 400,000 people in 21 states.
The McManus Comedies comprise five distinct one-man shows that are family friendly, hilarious stories about growing up in rural America when you're dirt poor (dirt being the only toy you can afford) and when the adults in your life get nervous every time they pass you on the street.
Pot Luck presents a wide array of weird McManus Stories. Witness Pat get abducted by space aliens. Find out why Mrs. Swisher thinks Martians have grown wheat for their young near her farm. Learn why Rancid Crabtree thinks grasshopper traps have jaws so small you can't really see 'em! Get a lecture on ethics and what not to do about them. Determine which pigs can be saddled and which not, and why real ponies don't go oink! Meet 100-year-old Ed and decide whether he can be trustednot to die on a camping trip! These and more offbeat and colorful await you if you've got enough Pot Luck to come see them!
Growing up in a household of two actors, Tim avoided acting like the plague...until some moment of deranged alchemy got him on stage for the first time at age 32.
Tim was the managing/artistic director of Centre Theatre Group for 6 years, and the founder (along with his beautiful jazz songstress wife, Leslie Ann Grove) and artistic director of CenterStage and Ella's Supper Club, all in Spokane, WA. He was the Marketing Director and a featured performer at Rockin' B Ranch near Liberty Lake, WA, for three seasons.
All along, Tim has consistently toured and continues to tour the McManus Comedies.
Tim and Pat celebrated 20 years of McManus Comedies in October of 2012! Pat celebrated by phoning Tim from an easy chair, while Tim was stuck in Winnemucca trying to find the theatre in an early but devastating snow storm. Sometime during 2013, Tim will perform a McManus Comedy for the 1700th time.but who's counting?
