Time to laugh

August 31, 2010 - Cindy Votruba

I remember more than 23 years ago when Louie Anderson had a televised comedy program on PBS. My brother and I could recite lines from his routine like some people can do lines from "Star Wars" or "Princess Bride" or "Monty Python's Search for the Holy Grail."

Some memorable lines from "Mom, Louie's Looking At Me Again" for me:

In going to a garage sale with his mother: "you could find a shirt." "What, does Raymond Burr live here?"

Thanksgiving food: "What, did your aquarium freeze up?

On his father's capabilities in fixing the TV: "Hoss looks thinner Dad."

And I've now had the pleasure of interviewing Anderson twice in my lifetime. I did get to see his show in Jackpot three years ago. He's coming back to the area to the Montevideo American Legion on Sept. 23. He's coming to some unusual small spots for a four-day tour, which includes stops in Chisholm and Dassel. But it's great he's hitting towns that might not necessarily get a big name comedian.

There are also a few comedy shows coming to the Landmark Bistro in Marshall this fall. Tracy native Jeff Bergs will perform Oct. 9 and Dave Mordal of "Last Comic Standing" is gracing the stage Nov. 6. Can't wait for that one.
