“A Fine and Pleasant Misery” is a one-man stage show about the humor of Patrick McManus. Pat McManus is one of America’s funniest humor writers with columns appearing in Field and Stream and Outdoor Life. McManus, author of twelve books, took his growing up years and fears of the dark in rural Idaho and put them on stage. One reviewer describes the show as “A wonderful cross between Mark Twain and Bill Cosby.” The result is a hilarious show with rolling laughter coming from the audiences. The comedy begins at 7:00 p.m. in Jacoby Auditorium on the main campus and brought to you by Art Beat.
Ticket prices for the show are $25 and $20 per person and can be purchased at the following locations: Umpqua Community College Fine Arts, 440.4691, Roseburg North Stephens Safeway, or www.ticketswest.com with additional handling fees.
