Ed Asner: A Man and his Prostate

  • 2:00pm
  • $45
  • $40 for strathspey members
  • all tickets an additional $5 day of show


Another great coup as the legendary Ed Asner, winner of 7 Emmy Awards and known to generations of fans as Lou Grant in the Mary Tyler Moore Show, Santa in Elf and as the voice of Carl in Pixar and Disney’s Up, performs at Strathspey Performing Arts Centre in ‘A Man and His Prostate’.

“It’s got wonderful humor and it’s got truth in it,” Asner says of the play written by Ed Weinberger, who, like Asner, has earned numerous Emmy Awards for his television work. Weinberger wrote for comedy legend Bob Hope, while also plying his craft for stand-up comics Richard Pryor and Dick Gregory. Additionally, Weinberger put his writing skills to work on television for The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson, The Dean Martin Show, and Taxi.

Based on a true-life experience, a man discovers his inner self in more ways than one. A near tragedy is masterfully transformed into a one-man comedy, perfectly portrayed by Ed Asner in his hilarious visit to the hospital in preparation for surgery he doesn’t want.

See the matinee at 2pm on Saturday, October 19 at Strathspey Performing Arts Centre in Mabou, Cape Breton.

(Friday’s performance is another great show with Ed Asner… God Help Us!)
