BAR HARBOR — Maine comedian Tim Sample, known for his wry and loving view of his home state, returns to the at Criterion Theatre and Arts Center on Thursday, Aug. 13 at 8 p.m. Tickets are $14 in advance or $16 at the door.
Novelist Stephen King has likened Mr. Sample’s work to that of Mark Twain, and broadcaster Charles Kuralt called him “Maine’s humorist laureate.” Mr. Sample’s books, albums, and videos (including four albums and a video for the Bert and I company) have sold well over a million copies. For 11 years he was a correspondent for CBS News and a regular essayist on the Emmy award-winning television show “CBS News Sunday Morning” hosted by veteran newsman Charles Osgood.
Mr. Sample was born and raised in Maine and has never lived (or for that matter
wanted to live, he says) anywhere other than the Pine Tree State.
