Ali: The Man, The Myth, The Peoples' Champion to be performed May 24
What happens when an actor, former boxer, and lifelong fan
of the world's most recognizable cultural icon actually gets
to meet his hero face-to-face, while working on the epic motion
picture that bears his name? Well, if you're comedian/actor/impressionist
Vincent Cook and your hero is the legendary three-time world
heavyweight boxing champion/humanitarian Muhammad Ali, magic
happens--magic and a heartfelt labor of love.
In Ali: The Man, The Myth, The Peoples' Champion, comedian and master impressionist Vincent Cook steps off the comedy stage and brings his unique talent to the theater in this one-man show that goes beyond the stories, feature films and documentaries and digs into the soul of the man loved and respected by millions.
Cook brings his show to Stevenson College at 8 pm. Wednesday, May 24. Admission is free. For more information, call (831) 459-4844.
A veteran stand-up comedian and master impressionist, Cook worked
with actors Will Smith and Jamie Foxx in the movie Ali
and with Halle Berry in director Robert Townsend's B.A.P.S.
