Show Details

The Kentucky Center presents
Graham Shelby - The Man on TV

Graham Shelby has spent more than 20 years performing stories for audiences of all ages in the U.S. and abroad. His most powerful performance to date is his one-man show, THE MAN ON TV, which tells the story of Graham’s relationship with his birth father, a man Graham laid eyes on for the first time when his father appeared on the CBS Evening News.

Jimmy Godwin was a former U.S. Army Green Beret who described his postwar struggles to American TV viewers and inspired Graham to begin a 25-year journey to track down, meet and ultimately make peace with his father, who died in 2008.

THE MAN ON TV uses video, music, images and more to explore the intersection between American history and one family’s history and to help veterans and civilians connect through storytelling.
