I'm the kind of home cook who uses a gram scale to measure out the flour when I bake (thanks in large part to Thomas Keller), and who levels off tablespoons with a knife before adding baking powder to a bowl. Some would call me anal, but I like to think AB would say I'm precise. Or maybe persnickety.
So I'm excited and you should be too that Brown is bringing his traveling road show to Nashville at Tennessee Performing Arts Center’s Andrew Jackson Hall on Thursday, Nov. 7 at 8 p.m. The official release promises:
Brown’s tour promises to be an eventful evening of stand-up comedy, talks show antics, multimedia lecture, live music and food experimentation. Be prepared. Ponchos will be involved. The show will offer an interactive component in which audience members will have the opportunity to serve as Brown’s trusted assistants on stage. For those hoping to sip at the pure source of Brownian wit and wisdom, this is a must-see extravaganza for the whole family.
"I've been cultivating material for this show for about a decade, so it'll feel pretty darned good to finally get it out of my head and onto a stage,” Brown said. “I feel we've come up with some pretty amazing food demos, and the multimedia segments are solid … but I do have to say I'm a bit nervous about the singing parts."
