The McManus Comedies
For Presenters The Shows What Folks Say Promo Help Tour Dates



  • Much as Hal Holbrook presents Mark Twain’s world, Tim Behrens brings to life more than 40 zany denizens of Blight, Idaho, the fictional home town of nationally renowned humor writer Patrick F. McManus. McManus, whose 24 books have sold more than 5 million copies, and Behrens, with more than 1600 performances in 20 years, have created a history of hilarity. A Seattle Times critic noted: “the audience, already moved to tears of laughter, were reduced to banging their heads on their knees in a rictus of paralyzed delight."

  • These six, distinct, G-rated, one-man comedies for theatres… and the corporate/conference shows… all have one guarantee in common: your audiences will laugh louder, harder and longer than they have in years. If they don’t, you don’t have to pay the actor! (We aren’t worried: often the laughter is so loud it hurts Tim’s ears.)

  • Don’t just take our word for it: the comedies have toured 23 states and two provinces to more than 450,000 pretty happy audience members. The Billings Gazette called them “laugh-packed shows reminiscent of Mark Twain and Bill Cosby!”

  • The story telling is universal, accessible, imaginative, intelligent, and most of all, funny. The Cultural Arts Manager of Auburn, WA, where Tim has sold several shows, said: “I have never heard such sustained laughter in a theatre.”

Only who's to know the prize was alive? Of course Bernie turned to me. He knew I had experience slaughtering and dressing animals from my having grown up in New York City. So he leaves the big white thing tied with a shoestring to my front door...
