A Most Remarkable Jackass: An Hour With Mark Twain
September 6th & 7th at 8:00PM
$15 General Admission
Come spend an evening with legendary author, humorist, and local curmudgeon, Mark Twain. Portrayed by Kit Webb, also a local humorist and curmudgeon, Twain will recount his stories known for their humor, satire, honesty, and blasphemy, as well as share some passages from his now sadly “classic” novels.
Christopher “Kit” Webb is a Connecticut native living in Wethersfield. He has worked at the Mark Twain House and Museum for six years, both as a regular tour guide and playing role of the Clemen’s coachman, Patrick McAleer, on the museum’s Living History tours.
As a freelancer, he also portrays Mark Twain, calling himself a “Twain imposter” rather than a “Twain impersonator” (it’s more accurate and Twain would have found it funny). His love for Twain was inspired by his grandfather who was a big fan of the writer. Additionally, kit works at the University of Hartford’s Harrt School and plays bass in The Rude Mechanicals, a local band.
