Author Peter Stoddard Produces CD of Lewis Grizzard Humor Few Have Heard Since 1981

Many consider Lewis Grizzard to be the finest humorist America ever produced. His books and recordings are still popular 26+ years after he left us in 1994 at the tender age of 47. Called the Will Rogers or Mark Twain of the South, Lewis Grizzard is easier to relate to by virtue of his contemporary messages. In 1981 Ronald Reagan had just been elected, and the Georgia Bulldogs had just won a National Championship. Politically incorrect as always, Lewis delivers edgy stories that still resonate. - January 03, 2021 - Stoddard Media
