Sokolsky on the Arts and Entertainment
A weekly program focusing on the arts and entertainment
It’s that time of year again with the “Huck Finn Jubilee” returning to Victorville June 13 to 15.
That will mean everything from the Nitty Ditty Dirt Band to jumping frogs and hot air balloons. It will also mean Mike Randall returning with his one-man performance as Mark Twain.
Randall tells Arts and Entertainment Editor Bob Sokolsky that he began playing Twain when he was 17. “I’m 54 now,” he says. “So you do the math.”
Randall says he is still putting things together for his “Jubilee” appearance. But he will definitely pay attention to Twain’s commentary when he humorously suggested he would run for president.
Meanwhile, he adds, there is no shortage of material when it comes to Mark Twain whom he salutes as a master writer and “standup comedian.”
