Bill Oberst, Jr. will be performing as Lewis Grizzard on January 17, 18 & 19 at the ART Station in Stone Mountain Village. “Lewis Grizzard: In His Own Words” has played at ART Station to sold out audiences for the past twelve seasons. Over the past decade the show has sold out over 850 shows across the United States. Bill Oberst, Jr. pays respect and honors Lewis Grizzard with the best of Grizzard’s stand-up comedy and selections from his books and columns.
Four wives, 450 daily newspapers, millions of fans, hundreds of concerts, oceans of vodka, thousands of prayers, and at the beginning and the end of it all, Moreland, Georgia. Always Moreland, the tiny town that time forgot and Lewis embellished. It was his Mayberry, his Lake Wobegon. Like Twain before him, Grizzard used the sense of his youth to weave tales that were always truth and even when they weren’t exactly fact; “this generation’s Mark Twain.”
