Political Satirist Mark Russell
Lots of political satirists work in comedy clubs and on TV but none have been working longer than Mark Russell. He started in the '50s, did PBS specials for 30 years and appeared regularly on Meet the Press. He retired in 2010 but not for long. Two years later, he took himself out of mothballs with fresh zingers aimed at our political hotshots.
May 2, 8:00 p.m., Don Gibson Theatre in Shelby, NC. Ticket information here.
