Spend An Evening with Mark Lowry — comedian, singer and Bill Gaither’s comic sidekick — in Cleveland.
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.”
