The Grand 1894 Opera House
News Release
Monday, February 13, 2012


GALVESTON ISLAND, TEXAS - It’s the show “everyone is laughing about”!  Carl Hurley and Jeanne Robertson – the two stars of SIRIUS/XM Satellite comedy radio – are bringing their “Double Funny” Show to The Grand 1894 Opera House on Tuesday, March 13th.  For just one hilarious performance only at 2pm, you won’t want to miss their side-splitting stories… sure to “lighten your heart, lift your spirit, and tickle your funny bone”!  Doors open at 1pm.  Tickets are $33 for individuals; $31 for groups of ten or more.  All seats are reserved. To purchase tickets, call 800.955.4746 or email directly to: 

Hurley stands 5’6” on tiptoes.  Robertson is 6’2” with her hair “mashed down”.  He grew up swapping homespun stories in the foothills of Eastern Kentucky; she is a former Miss North Carolina who finds comic inspiration in everyday life.  Hurley is rotund and jolly with a mischievous twinkle in his eye; Robertson is willowy and elegant with a flair for weaving “a tapestry of humor as colorful and lovingly constructed as a country quilt.”

Disguised as an “irresistible ‘good ole boy’”, Hurley shares the same sense of humor and style as Andy Griffith and will take his audiences off the “main road” to the hilariously honest, quirky, often unintentional comedy that happens around all of us… all the time.

And for those of us who don’t believe comedy and beauty go together… think again!  Robertson –often compared to Lucille Ball – was honored as Miss Congeniality in the 1963 Miss America Pageant and has been receiving honors ever since – including Toastmasters International’s 1998 Golden Gavel Award.  In fact, her stories about her husband – who she affectionately refers to as “Left Brain” - have become a sensation on YouTube with more than 15 million “hits.”

The Grand 1894 Opera House is located at 2020 Postoffice Street in historic downtown Galveston. The theatre is recognized as “The Official Opera House for the State of Texas.”
