The 5th Annual “Lend Me An Ear!”
Monday, October 27
New American Shakespeare Tavern
499 Peachtree Street
Atlanta, GA 30308
This year it’s all about the yuks.
Every fall, over 30 AFTRA, SAG, and Equity voice talents gather together for a night of radio recreations as a fundraiser for the Atlanta Community Food Bank. Old Time Radio: Comedy Tonight! is this year’s theme. The evening will include Blondie, direct from the funny papers; the pointed and absurd wittiness of The Fred Allen Show; The Bickersons, a sourly cynical take on the institution of marriage; the low-key drollery of Easy Aces; and The Great Gildersleeve, one of radio’s earliest spin-offs.
Additionally this year, joining us is our Special Guest Star Bill Tush and his fellow cast member, comedian Rob Cleveland from the TBS Tush Show. With Bill as the acerbic humorist Henry Morgan and Rob as his foil, The Henry Morgan Show will be joyfully recreated for our modern audience with all its irreverence and intractability.
Doors open to the public at 6:15PM and English fare and beverages will be available. General admission is $15, either at the door or online at http://ear.tix.com. Seating is first come, first served. There is public parking at Crawford Long Hospital across the street from the theater.
Directions are at www.shakespearetavern.com/directions.htm

Come join in the laughter and celebrate The Golden Age of Radio!
It’s a great event for a great cause!
