Mike Miclon’s The Early Evening Show will be presented at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, July 9, at Celebration Barn Theater in South Paris. A spoof of late-night talk shows, The Early Evening Show is the longest-running live variety show in Maine, with more than two hundred performances over the past twenty-three years. Packed with surprise guests and audience interactions, The Bangor Daily News called The Early Evening Show “a seamless, hilarious production,” and CBS Sunday Morning called it “must-see reality!”
