Tim Sample Benefit Performance

There are many Maine tale tellers and humorists, but, in the tradition of Bert and I, Tim Sample is probably Maine’s best known comedian. Tim Sample will perform at the Centre Street Congregational Church, Centre Street, Machias, on Friday, July 10, 2015, at 7 p.m. Known for both his presentation and Maine accent, Sample has sold well over a million copies of his books, albums, and videos, including albums and a video for the Bert and I company.  He has also written several books, including How to Talk Yankee and Saturday Night at Moody’s Diner.

 Tickets for the event are: $25 each for Meet and Greet, and include meeting Tim Sample, refreshments, and reserved seating.  Meet and Greet will begin at 5:30 p.m., July 10; regular seating tickets are $15 each.  Tickets can be purchased by calling 454-7521, ext. 126 or at the Machias Chamber of Commerce office, 255-4402.
