Billy Bob Steinberg will bring his one-man show to Super Saturday, March 17, at the Tryon Movie Theatre at 10:45 a.m. or 2:30 p.m.
One critic said of Steinberg’s show, “You’ll laugh so hard, your face will hurt!”
Building on his checkered background as a stand-up comic, circus performer and all sorts of things in between, Billy Bob is just your everyday banjo playing, juggling, hand-shadow impression, singing animals, bicycle playing, magician comedy act.
Simultaneously intelligent and wacky, Billy Bob’s full-speed-ahead act has been called “total off-the-wall, roll-in-the-aisles fun.”
Also on stage at Super Saturday will be Queen Nur, a nationally celebrated master storyteller and weaver of magic in words and song. Dressed in multicolored African costume, accompanied by international jazz percussionist Dwight James, she will present her “Sweet Potato Pie & Such” program at the Congregational Church at 10:45 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. Steeped in rhythm and infused with audience participation, her program is full of energy and grounded in tradition.
The Super Saturday box office will be open Thursday and Friday, March 15 and 16, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and on Super Saturday itself at the Tryon Fine Arts Center. For more information call 828-859-8322, ext. 301.
