FREEPORT – Nationally known comedian Tim Hawkins will bring his clean comedy with an edge to the Freeport Performing Arts Center Saturday, Oct. 25, to raise money for Family Laughs, a community outreach of the Maine Classical Christian School.

There will be two shows at 5:30 and 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $15 for adults, $10 for youth ages 5-18. They may be purchased by calling 442-8242.

Hawkins’ arsenal is filled with high-energy stand-up, physical comedy, slick guitar skills, a thousand faces and voices, and improvisational chops. And he can really sing. “People think I live a rock-star life,” said Hawkins. “Believe me, Mick Jagger never gets lost in a Hertz parking lot looking for his Ford Focus.”

A former All-American baseball player and St. Louis native, Hawkins traded sports for the stage, teaching himself guitar and honing his craft at area comedy clubs. This year, he is booked for 120 events in 30 states. His “Full Range of Motion” concert DVD won the 2007 Crown Award for Best Comedy and has aired on prime-time television. His TV special for the comedy series “Bananas,” won a Regional Emmy.

With four kids of his own and a wife who is winning her battle with breast cancer, Hawkins gets new material daily from the perils of marriage and parenting and performs for groups of all ages.
