Red Skelton Museum of American Comedy: Live and Up Close will be offered on Monday, August 10 at 2:00pm (CT). Join us as we “travel” to Vincennes, Indiana, the birthplace of Red Skelton. This conversation will engage Anne Pratt, Executive Director of The Red Skelton Museum of American Comedy, which celebrates the life and legacy of one of America’s greatest comedians. Remember “Freddie the Freeloader” and “Clem Kadiddlehopper”? You will have the opportunity to enjoy Mr. Skelton’s famous characters featured in specially designed exhibits, including their newest exhibit, “We Dood It” which explores Red’s time in WWII as both a soldier and an entertainer.
