Mike Randall as Mark Twain Live! - 9/8
On Saturday, September 8, from 2-4 p.m. Mike Randall will bring his nationally-acclaimed, one-man show to New Angola Theater! From the moment Randall walks on stage there is no doubt that the "Celebrated Humorist" Mark Twain was, and continues to be, one of America's greatest natural resources! Randall's touring show is set at the turn of the last century as a 70-year-old Mark Twain (Randall) gives a lecture.
Randall first began impersonating America's greatest author at the age of 17! Two years later he was winning rave reviews at "The Buffalo Showboat." A the age of 20, he had given a command performance at the State Department in Washington DC, and one year later he brought his rendition of the "Celebrated Humorist" to New York City's only dinner theater, "The Little Hippodrome."
Over 40 years and more than two thousand performances later, Mike Randall continues to enjoy his close encounter with Mark Twain. Randall is the only Mark Twain impersonator to be formally acknowledge by the Daughters of the American Revolution for his authenticity!
"Mark Twain Live" is endorsed by the Mark Twain Museum of Buffalo. Randall is the official "Mark Twain" of The Annual Huck Finn Jubilee in Victorville, California and the Annual Mark Twain Birthday Bash & Symposium in Buffalo, NY. Several hours of makeup combined with the actor's mannerisms, speech and Twain's actual words create a startling realistic portrait of "America's original stand-up comic - Mark Twain!"
Mike Randall is a senior meteorologist at WKBW-TV Channel 7 in Buffalo. He is also an AP and UPI award-winning feature reporter and has been with WKBW-TV since August 1983.
