In the play Steve plays Joe Cantor, an unemployed auto worker; Joe Bussell, who was killed in the Ford Hunger March; a member of the worker's chorus; and a member of Father Coughlin's "Hour of Power" choir.

Steve Deasy – show in Pontiac, Fri. 2/19/10 & Banjo Jokes

Just a reminder about the show in Pontiac this Friday.  For info see below.  I know in my original note the other artist was going to be Barb Barton from Lansing, but they must have changed it, and it will be someone called Banjo Jim and Ricky.  Which puts me in mind of two banjo jokes:

Question: How will we know that the stage is level on Friday?

Answer: Banjo Jim will be drooling out of both sides of his mouth.

Question: How will we be able to tell if Ricky has perfect pitch?

Answer: If he can toss the banjo into the dumpster from 20 yards out and hit Mark Iannace’s accordian. &

I’m looking forward to meeting Banjo Jim and Ricky and seeing you all there.

Peace,

Steve
