If see­ing Chris­tian co­me­dian Mark Lowry in a live show is on your bucket list, you won’t want to miss “An Evening With Mark Lowry” tonight, May 25, at Mount Olive Min­istries, 3522 Har­ri­son Pike in Cleve­land, Tenn.

The 7 p. m. show is a ben­e­fit for the Sal­va­tion Army of Cleve­land’s youth pro­gram. Tick­ets are $25 gen­eral ad­mis­sion or $ 35 VIP seat­ing. Tick­ets will be sold at the door.

In Fe­bru­ary, Lowry told USA Today that at the end of this year he is cut­ting back on tour­ing and will come off the road to fo­cus on new projects. He ex­plained he wasn’t re­tir­ing, just “re­tread­ing,” since he will still ap­pear for se­lect dates.

Lowry is a gospel singer, song­writer, au­thor, sto­ry­teller and co­me­dian who came to fame as the bari­tone in the Gaither Vo­cal Band and Bill Gaither’s comic side­kick on Gaither Home­com­ing ap­pear­ances.

He wrote the hit song, “Mary Did You Know,” which has be­come a Christ­mas stan­dard and has been recorded more than 400 times by artists in al­most every mu­sic genre.

Lowry has of­ten told his au­di­ences about grow­ing up in Texas, a hy­per­ac­tive child who had what is now diag- nosed as At­ten­tion Deficit Hy­per­ac­tiv­ity Disor­der.

“I had it (ADHD) be­fore peo­ple knew what it was. Back then they called it B- R-A-T. All I knew was that there weren’t enough trees to make enough paper for all the notes my teacher would have to send home with me,” he jokes.

His work in­cludes a long list of record­ings and DVDs re­flect­ing a wide range of in­flu­ences, in­clud­ing “Mark Lowry On Broad­way,” “Mark Lowry Goes To Hol­ly­wood,” “Life Gets Loud,” “Un­plugged and Un­planned” and most re­cently “Dogs Go To Heaven.”
