FMU Performing Arts Center to showcase storyteller Andy Offutt Irwin

FLORENCE – Some people are said to have an “inner-kid.” Andy Offutt Irwin, who is said to have an “outer-kid,” will perform Saturday, Jan. 14 at the Francis Marion University Performing Arts Center at two different shows. 

The first show, “Kid Entrapment,” in the center’s smaller, more intimate Black Box Theatre, will be at 2 p.m. The second show, “Book Every Saturday for a Funeral,” will be at 7:30 p.m. in the Black Box Theatre as well

With a manic Silly Putty voice, astonishing mouth noises, and hilarious stories, he is equal parts mischievous schoolboy and the Marx Brothers, peppered with a touch of the Southern balladeer.  A native of Covington, Ga., Andy is a storyteller, humorist, singer, songwriter, musician, whistler, walking menagerie of sound effects and dialects and so much more. 

His show is the fifth of 10 shows in the “Black Box Events Series”  being performed during the PAC’s inaugural year. 

In addition to the “Black Box Events Series,” there are four others during the PAC’s season that runs until May of 2012.  Those series include, Broadway plays, concerts, family oriented shows and a variety series as well as the acts in the smaller, more intimate Black Box Theatre. Information on the complete season is available at

Prices for the shows begin at $10 and  may be purchased at, via telephone at (843) 661-4444, and at the FMU Performing Arts Center Box Office. Telephone and personal ticket sales are available Monday through Friday between 12-5 p.m. Subject to availability, tickets may be available for purchase at the door.
