comedy

Kevin Downey Jr., from 'America's Got Talent,' 8 p.m., Charles R. Wood Theatre, 207 Glen St. Glens Falls. Comedian, columnist and semi-finalist on "America’s Got Talent," Kevin Downey, Jr. made his TV debut at age 6 on CKLW’s “The Bozo Show,” where he won a hockey stick, a 12-pack of Orange Crush and some Tootsie Rolls playing, “The Bug Game.” Like all kids in Detroit, Kevin attempted to play ice hockey, but his first and only season was cut short when the coach realized Kevin was too small to skate while wearing all the gear, thus clearing the way for Wayne Gretzky to top Gordie Howe’s achievements. Kevin moved to New York City looking for fame and fortune. He instantly landed a “part” at Macy’s Santa Land as an elf (some call it the longest running show on Broadway). Kevin was decimated to learn all elves were fired after the Christmas Eve shift. Shortly thereafter, Kevin went to his first comedy show at New York’s Comic Strip Live and realized his calling, though it would be three years until he had the stones to get on stage himself. He can be heard on "The Bob and Tom Show," Sirius and XM satellite radio, regularly. He’s been on Comedy Central, "What Not to Wear" and "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy," where he got a much-needed haircut. Kevin appears at the Comedy Stop at the Trop in Las Vegas at least four times per year. He has an ever-growing fan base that comes to see him again and again. He writes a column called “Drinking on $11 a Night,” which can be read in Bachelor Pad Magazine, GC magazine and at usedwigs.com and drinkingon11.com. He has a nationally released DVD called “I’m Not Gay, But Don't Stop” which can be found on Amazon and Netflix. Kevin is not related to Robert Downey Jr. Tickets cost $20 in advance, $25 on the day of the show.

lecture

June 12, 1863: The Day the War Stopped, 1-2 p.m., Grant Cottage, 1000 Mt. McGregor Road, Wilton. During the Civil War, John Hart of Schenectady commanded a Union gunboat on the Mississippi River. On June 12, 1863, while his ship was on patrol near the Confederate fortress of Port Hudson, he became delirious with fever and shortly afterward took his own life. The way Lt. Commander Hart died shamed his family and friends and they did not want to talk about him. But Hart's fellow sailor and comrade-in-arms, Oliver Ambrose Batcheller of Saratoga, knew this was not fair or right. Batcheller understood Hart's stellar service to the United States and he knew something else: why the rebel town of Saint Francisville, Louisiana stopped its part of the war for a day so that John Hart could receive a respectful and dignified burial in the town cemetery. Grant Cottage tour guide Steve Trimm, portraying Oliver Batcheller, will tell the story of John Hart and the Southern town that honored him in 1863. (Every June 12 since then, Saint Francisville has solemnly recalled the Day the War Stopped.)

Brian Dowd has spent most of his life wrestling with a colossal crush on his best friend's sister, who happens to live next door. But every time he speaks with Beth Finnegan, he ends up with his foot in his mouth. Now, Jerry Finnegan's sister is getting married and Brian has to determine what went wrong. In a series of fast-moving, hilarious flashbacks, two actors play Brian and Beth as children, adolescents, teens and young adults ... right up to the uproarious, yet touching, finale.

lecture

Leonard Bernstein's New York, 1:30 p.m., The Sembrich, 4800 Lakeshore Drive, Bolton Landing. In celebration of the centennial of the composer's birth, Broadway expert John Kenrick presents a studio talk on the musicals "On the Town," "Wonderful Town" and "West Side Story."

Author Talk and Book Signing, 6:30-7:30 p.m., Caldwell-Lake George Library, 336 Canada St., Lake George. Please join us for an author talk and book signing with Suzanne La Voie. La Voie will read from her debut novel, "Knight Shift," answer questions from the audience, and books will be available for purchasing and signing. "Knight Shift" tells the story of Sage Knight, who, after a major life upheaval, seeks solace in her beloved town of Lake George in the Adirondack Mountains. "Knight Shift" is about the power of starting over, and how dealing with and overcoming adversity can become our greatest blessings if we allow them to. Suzanne LaVoie has a master's degree in social work with a concentration in international and community development from Monmouth University. Suzanne loves to travel, but has a special passion for Lake George and the Adirondack region in upstate New York, which is the inspiration and setting for "Knight Shift" and future books in this series. Her second book is due to launch on Oct. 3. This program is free and open to the public. Contact the library at 518-668-2528 for more information.
