It's the annual Thanksgiving Weekend visit from the sometimes whimsical, sometimes wacky, and always hysterical, Heywood Banks. You don't want to miss the return of this 'Disney Experiment Gone Bad'...it's a mix of original music and strange comedy!
Equal parts genius and buffoon, this songwriter-comic-singer-poet-musician has become a cult hero and a pop icon, with a show that appeals to college students, stoners, businessmen, yuppies, rednecks, punks, kids or your grandmother. Heywood intersperses his humorous observations of life with twisted, inventive, bizarre songs, sung and played in a variety of styles, from folk, to country to rock to pop, and way beyond.
His best-known songs include: 'Wiper Blades', 'Fishin' Worms', 'I Don't Buy My Own Tires', 'The Cat Got Dead', 'Dust Mites', '18 Wheels', 'Fly's Eyes', 'Perry Had a Pimple', 'The One Eye Love', the classic... 'Toast', and find out what he did with ...'Big Butter Jesus' now that the butter has “been zapped.”
With countless TV appearances and a myriad of radio credits including a regular stint on "The Bob and Tom Show" and "Dr. Demento," AND the unique distinctions of serving as the MC at the Ann Arbor Folk Festivaland having one of his original songs performed on American Idol.With a bunch of CD's of his original songs, it's clear to us why he's so popular.
Heywood loves to perform live and this is your chance to see him up close and personal at the Comedy Showcase.
