I began Mark Twain impersonations in 2015 after being told for 25 years that I should perform as Mark Twain based on my appearance. I have always had the same hair style, color, and mustache as Mark Twain. I prefer performing with my handcrafted Bentwood rocker, two small tables, a small trunk, and my pipe (which I never smoke). I always receive great reviews on my props and performances.

My act is a family-oriented performance for all ages that does not include profanity or vulgarity. My performance always makes the audience feel like they are back in time with Mark Twain himself. I have received many compliments that the audience was enchanted by my performance as Mark Twain. Many audience members requested information concerning my future performances.

Performances are as follows:

* Abraham Lincoln Birthplace National Historical Park (Hodgenville, KY) to elementary school age children. The children were very attentive and thoroughly enjoyed the performance and asked many questions.
* A sit down movie shoot with props for a full length movie about the Mark Twain era. This resulted in a 20 minutes appearance in the movie. This movie is still in production in the Philippines.
* Historic State Theater, Elizabethtown, KY. This also included a meet and greet session after my performance.
* Hodgenville, KY Women's Club. This also included a meet and greet session after my performance.
* Eastern National two day event at Abraham Lincoln Birthplace National Historical Park.
* Two days event at Abraham Lincoln Birthplace National Historical Park (for elementary school children).
* Shave-a-thon in Elizabethtown, KY, which is a four hour benefit for small children with cancer. This wonderful event raised over $10,000.
* Abraham Lincoln Birthplace National Historical Park Centennial Celebration. This two day event was held July 16-July 17, 2016. I performed with several other impersonators. This event was televised by Kentucky Education TV (KET) and CNN. Both the park and imperators gave me several compliments with my Mark Twain performance.
* Volunteered for the FLNHP. It was a two day event for school children from the surrounding counties.
* History Museum of Elizabethtown, KY. This all day event was held on August 13, 2016.
* Festival of the Arts, Big Rapids, MI. The performance was held in the auditorium of the local college on February 18, 2018. Over 200 people attended this event. I also had a meet and greet with the audience.
* The Golden Lamb Hotel, Lebanon, OH on April 21, 2018. Five presidents plus Mark Twain stayed at this hotel. The seventy room hotel was a sell out. The event was billed as a evening with Mark Twain. The tickets were $60.00 and was a complete sellout and many people were turned away. I also talked with and posed for photos with all the guests.
* St Charles, MO hotel on July 24, 2018. This event was attended by over 200 people.

Curtis performed for our Festival of the Arts in Big Rapids, Michigan. He was more than professional and easy to work with. He was willing to taylor his performance to fit our program layout even splitting his time with a ragtime pianist. His performance is a mix of humor and history with tales of Mark Twain's life as well as some of his stories. Curtis is soft spoken but has no trouble being heard with a microphone. We were very happy with his performance.

We had Curtis perform as Mark Twain at our High School Alumni event. He drove 5 hours one way to do the show, and we did provide extra to help with his travelling costs so that he could spend the night. He performed in front of about 50 people with a 75 minute show. His likeness of Mark Twain is right on, and he was very professional and pleasant. Maybe a little soft spoken, would be my only notation to him is the feedback I got from the show, but that could have been our sound system. I would recommend him to do your community event or party if you are looking for an American Historical figure. J.S.
