8/12/17 - Homer Lee & CJ Newsom Variety Show - Saturday, August 12 @ 7PM
Bull Shoals Theater of the Arts
Saturday, August 12, 2017 - 4:00pm
‘Homer Lee’ is none other than Branson, Missouri’s favorite comedic actor, Terry Wayne Sanders. He’s the busiest comedian in town with 16 different jobs in the entertainment field! He’s still going strong in his 38th year as a comic headliner now known as ‘The Face of Branson’!
A veteran in films, Terry prefers the no-on-one touch and intimacy with audiences in live performances. His comedy antics earned him a regular spot on television’s Hee Haw where he worked exclusively with Roy Clark, Grandpa Jones and Minnie Pearl. Terry has more recently been working with CJ Newsom in “Classic Country’s Patsy Cline & Friends”.
CJ Newsom brings to life one of music’s most iconic legends, and pays tribute to other country greats! Many performers imitate the incredible Patsy Cline, one of the most revered singers to ever pick up a microphone, but few do so with the passion and skill of CJ Newsom! All the best Branson shows have at least a little bit of comedy; Newsom’s upped the ante with more than just a bit, she’s nabbed the comedy genius of the sensational Terry Sanders! He’s been delighting fans for years with his zany cast of characters that include Homer Lee, Joan Rivers and Grandma Beulah.
