FULL DESCRIPTION: Hailed by a board member of Athens’ own Rabbit Box storytelling company as today’s “Eddie Albert and Eva Gabor”, Mike and Denise Mount will have you waxing nostalgic and laughing to tears with tales of their respective “Green Acres” youths in Alabama and Western New York. Hootersville-type characters come to life before the audience and are lovingly embraced as Mike and Denise weave their stories with affection and comedy. From the local wash-hole to the town’s overindulgent social drinker, from the hardware store to the moon-landing, from Mike’s fear of clowns to Denise’s love of same, this husband and wife tandem team will leave you feeling good and get you to thinking about your own stories!
