Tim Sample plans to take the stage at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 25, at Waterville Opera House, 1 Common St. in Waterville.

Sample is a Maine native whose unique New England style of humor has gained him a national following.
Describing Sample’s work as “humor” rather than “comedy” is, according to fellow Mainer and bestselling novelist Stephen King an important distinction: “He’s a funny guy, you’ll get no argument from me on that score, but no more a comedian than Mark Twain or Artemis Ward. Like, them, Timmy (that’s what I always call him the way folks from up our way are apt to call their friends “dearie”) isn’t acting; he’s just talking in a kind of heightened and gifted way, as folks do when they’re passing on valuable tales about the human condition,” according to a news release from the Opera House.

Tickets cost $20. All proceeds will go the Youth Arts Access Fund.
