“HARDY LAUGHS AND HEARTY STORIES"
Featuring the Stand-Up Chameleon Jackson Gillman
Quick before those New Year’s resolutions are yesterday's news resolve to start the year with some "Hardy Laughs and Hearty Stories." Jackson Gillman of Onset, MA has stories that sparkle with energy, wit and whimsy. He has been Teller-in-Residence at the International Storytelling Center and featured at national festivals. Known for his eccentric comedy, Jackson also enjoys using the quirks and quiet in daily life for grist in his storytelling. You'll get a taste of both tonight as Jackson flashes back on the year, and life in general, regaling us with his perceptions, astute and askew. And when all is said and sung, it is apparent that there is an underlying foundation of beneficence, hope and spirit infusing all of his work.
