The Mineral Point Opera House is happy to have comedian Heywood Banks performing on Saturday, October 4 at 8PM. Tickets are $20 and are available at Berget Jewelry in Mineral Point, on brownpapertickets.com and at the door.
HeywoodBanks.com describes his act as “one-of-a-kind, almost impossible to describe, with a style his very own. Equal parts genius and buffoon, this songwriter-comic-singer-poet-musician has become a cult hero and a pop icon, with a show that appeals to college students, stoners, businessmen, yuppies, rednecks, punks, kids or your grandmother.”
This show is especially perfect for your grandmother if she’s a redneck, stoner.
Heywood intersperses his humorous observations of life with twisted, inventive, bizarre songs, sung and played in a variety of styles, from folk, to country to rock to pop, and way beyond. His songs include “Toast”, “Fly’s Eyes”, “Wiper Blades”, “Pancreas”, “Big Butter Jesus” (a song about the King of Kings statue), “18 Wheels (on a Big Rig)”, “The One Eye Love” & “The Cat Got Dead”.
Heywood frequently appears on the nationally syndicated radio program The Bob and Tom Show. His most popular and widely known song is called “Toast,” (played on a toaster with a pair of forks). Another recurring song that Bob and Tom occasionally play is “Trauma to the Groin.” Heywood’s songs have also been played on the Dr. Demento Show.
