McManus in Love
Get in the spirit of Spring this summer with a performance of “McManus in Love,” a one-man comedy written by nationally renowned humor writer Patrick F. McManus, and starring his indentured actor, Tim Behrens. The performance is Saturday, September 30th and starts at 7:30PM at the Nampa Civic Center. Tickets start at just $18 plus applicable fees. Get tickets at www.ictickets.com or call 208-442-3232.
Patrick was born and raised in Sandpoint, Idaho and has had humor columns in several magazines including Field & Stream and Outdoor Life. He mostly wrote about the outdoor adventures he exaggerated on from his childhood. “Love” follows the hilarious antics of the young Pat and his pal Crazy Eddie Muldoon, as they discover their fear of the dark is child’s play compared to their fear of GIRLS!
But something keeps them wondering about love, romance, marriage and what is this thing called dating anyway? Over the course of the evening, they discover why your first date warps your personality forever!
Pick up personal grooming tips from the old woodsman, Rancid Crabtree, who takes a bath once every leap year -- because he has this theory that a mixture of soap and water will eat holes in your protective crust. Learn dating moves from cousin Buck, who grew up to be only slightly smarter than celery. Then follow Pat into the movie theater on that first date with none other than Melba Peachbottom, the prettiest girl in the county.
Actor Tim Behrens portrays the one-man cast of 15 characters, including a bat, a bear, a bicycle, and an even stranger assortment of humans. “Love” is one in a repertoire of five McManus Comedies that have toured 23 states and Canada, in 1100 performances to more than 450,000 people.
“Outstanding performance…One terrific evening!” Jack Lemmon
“Behrens…[performs] brilliantly, with an amazing range of facial expressions and
More limb twisting and odd-posturing humor than you’d ever imagine possible. Kind of like a cross between Bill Cosby and Mark Twain.” - Billings Gazette
