ROCKLAND — On Thursday, September 26, at 2 p.m., in the Community Room of the Rockland Public Library, Ben Perry and Stanley will present Lime City Humor.
Ben Perry makes punny novelties that date back to 1973, when he first came up with "IT" in a nutshell, followed by the "Stool Sample" some years later. He has put together well over forty humorous novelties which are now mostly represented in the recent publication, Lime City Humor.
Ben Perry was born and raised in Rockland. After graduating from Rockland High School in 1954, he entered the US Navy and retired as a Chief Petty Officer. After selling automobiles and managing a car dealership parts department, he worked for Fisher Engineering as the personnel anmager and safety director. Upon retiring in 1990 his next career was with Camden National Bank, retiring from there in 2006.
He and Stanley have performed at the Strand Theater, Watts Hall, the Rockland Historical Society, and several other local establishments.
Stanley is a true ventriloquist since his mouth never moves, according to the Library, in a news release. Stanley and Ben look forward to meeting you, telling funny stories, and then selling and signing books.
This talk is free and open to the public. Rockland Public Library is located at 80 Union St. FMI: 594-0310.
