Will Rogers, Now!

A Road Scholar program by Lance Brown

In this first-person characterization, Lance Brown explores the humanity of us all through the eyes of one of America’s great humorists, Will Rogers. Sharing Rogers’ wit and wisdom, which are as relevant today as they were in the early 20th Century, Brown presents a dynamic portrayal of this beloved philosopher of the people, telling the truth in very simple words. Through his homespun philosophy, Rogers promotes acceptance of America’s ethnic diversity, which is rooted deep in his Native American heritage and cowboy upbringing.

Lance Brown received a BFA in painting & drawing from Denver University, and has been presenting Will Rogers to theatres, cultural arts centers, libraries, museums, colleges and corporate settings for over 15 years. He is the author of On the Road with Will Rogers, and has over 25 years as a professional musician and storyteller.
