JERRY BROWN - The 11th Annual Jerry Brown Arts Festival is this weekend! It includes more than 40 artists and their works! It runs tomorrow from 9am until 5pm and Sunday from 10am until 4pm. The festival is at a new location this year - the former Colby building at 236 Laurel Lane in Hamilton. Head to downtown Hamilton and "just follow the signs." The trip is just over an hour northwest of Birmingham on Corridor X/US 78. Admission is free. For more information: www.JBAF.org
ZOO - Kelly Wall joined us from the Birmingham Zoo to introduce Mickey to a new animal. To learn more information about the animal or visit the zoo, go to birminghamzoo.com.
COMEDIAN - Comedian Don D-C Curry joined us on the set this morning! Widely known as the star of numerous stand-up comedy tours (including the highly lauded "Royal Comedy Tour," of winter/spring 2010) playing huge theatres at home and abroad and headlining special engagements at the nation's hottest comedy clubs, Don "D.C." Curry's talents are far more than meets the eye at a single glance. At second glance you'll see him co-starring in major studio pictures or taking the duties of leading man in indie feature films. Look again and you'll see him touring the country as the lead in a hit stage play or serving as the front man of his own R&B and Blues band. Take yet another glimpse (or listen) and you'll hear him shining as a skilled voice-over artist on hit TV shows like Boondocks. Bottom line, DC Curry is a very versatile, and extremely funny man. For tickets or more information for this weekend's appearances, call the Comedy Club Stardome at (205) 444-0008 or visit stardome.com
