“An Evening with George Burns” Coming to Austin

The Austin Dam Memorial Association and E. O. Austin Historical Society invite you to take a stroll down memory lane, as they welcome George Burns impressionist, Al Long, to the Austin Vets Club on Saturday, April 21, 2012 at 7 PM.

 Get ready to “Say good-night, Gracie” at “An Evening with George Burns.” From Vaudeville to movies to nightclubs, George Burns was one of America’s most recognizable and memorable comedians. His signature round-frame eyeglasses, his El Producto cigar in hand, and his deadpan delivery are coming to Austin. Al Long will mesmerize you with his portrayal of Burns, bringing the legend of comedy’s one-liners to life once again.

 Originally from the Philadelphia area, Long is a nationally recognized performer. He has appeared at events such as the Golden Age of Television and Legends of Comedy, and has performed as the opening act for Carol Channing and The Tommy Dorsey Big Band, among others.

 Guests will enjoy a nightclub type atmosphere, complete with hors d’oeuvres and refreshments compliments of Catering by Claudia. Tickets cost $20 and can be purchased in Austin at the Austin Vets Club or E. O. Austin Home and Museum, and in Coudersport at the Potter County Visitors Association or Sunny Hill Enterprises. Tickets can also be purchased at the door. Proceeds will benefit the E. O. Austin Home and Museum and the Austin Dam Memorial Association. For more information, call Ron Ebbert at 814-647-8650.

 The Austin Dam Memorial Association is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that aims to preserve the remains of the Austin Dam and remember the victims and survivors of the 1911 Austin Flood. The E. O. Austin Home, founded in 2001, is a museum dedicated to the history of Austin and the surrounding areas.
