Please note that this show is at the Walhalla Performing Arts Center, not the Artisan of Flat Rock. One night, one show…. and this is going to be a blast. Meet N Greet also available.

Pam Stone co-starred in the television series Coach for seven seasons as the character, Judy Watkins. She also appeared in the sit-com, “The Drew Carey Show”, the Rob Reiner political documentary, “But Seriously, Folks,” and the George Lucas 1994 film “Radioland Murders,” starring Mary Stuart Masterson and Brian Benben.

Nelson specializes in rubber-faced comedy characters, much as Red Skelton did in his heyday. His most popular originals include Jiffy Jeff, a punch drunk prizefighter with a Gym in NYC; Eppy Epperman, a brilliant but nerdy kid with deeper insights than meet the eye; an entire football team of stereotypical characters and unnamed football stars doing a charity commercial; Wilby Stuckerson, a hillbilly chicken farmer based on a life experience of Nelson’s from Shreveport, Louisiana, and Mr. Pingyeh, an argumentative Asian man who is more eloquent than the people with whom he argues. He is also known for his Jacques-Yves Cousteau impersonations and his “football act” in which he parodies the old team rundowns in the College Football All-Star games, in which players announce their names, numbers and teams (example: “Quasimodo… Notre Dame… halfback!”)

Nelson was Rodney Dangerfield’s opening act for eight years and was featured in two of Rodney’s HBO stand-up comedy showcases, alongside Jerry Seinfeld, Roseanne Barr, Rita Rudner and Bob Saget. That led to two HBO specials starring Nelson, including “Nelson Schmelson”.[1] He considers Rodney his ‘Comedy Godfather’. Nelson was also in a comedy group called “The Identical Triplets” with Eddie Murphy and Rob Bartlett.
