STANFORD - Local comedian George Garrison will perform his comedy routine this weekend at Renfro Valley's Jamboree.
The Jamboree is a 90-minute variety show featuring country music performances by the Renfro Valley entertainers and comedy routines. This will be Garrison's first cameo as a comedian.
"At one time, I thought I'd like to be a comedian, but every time I got up to talk, people would laugh at me and I couldn't take it," jokes Garrison.
His beginnings in comedy were with joke-telling and other funny, often tall tales told around family gatherings and at small venues. This is Garrison's first time at Renfro Valley as a comedian but not his first time onstage at Renfro. He's also played fiddle at the annual fiddlers convention held in the fall. His father bought the German-made fiddle about 70 years ago.
