Welcome to a Reality Show on-stage. Scott Long shares his story of how quickly life can go from urban hipster to suburban dipster, which happens when you become a father of twins at 40. While many have left to chase some LA or NYC dream, Scott is proudly rooted in his Fly Over Country life. Growing up in the cornstalk ghetto of Iowa and a proud Hawkeye grad, Scott has toured the country non-stop for 2 decades, performing in 40 different states. If you have been looking for a comedian who discusses porn and minivans or Lollapalooza and the Wiggles all in the same joke, this is your show. Scott has appeared on NBC, FOX-TV, ESPN, XM radio, and the Bob and Tom Show. He’s in his 11th season writing the Frank Caliendo sketches for the emmy-nominated NFL on FOX pregame show. Known for his hilarious interactions with the audience, no two Scott Long shows are ever the same.

 His latest show is called Good Dad…Not a Great Dad and it’s a hilariously edgy, but sometimes poignant exploration of having twins at 40 years old.

 Scott has also written a book of comedic essays entitled Dysfunctional Thoughts of a 21st Century Man, plus released 2 comedy CD’s and 2 comedy DVD’s.  His stand-up comedy blog, Fly Over Comedy (scottcomedy.com) gets 1000′s of hit each week.

Spokes for Strokes Bike Tour is June 6


Saturday, June 6, 2015
7 a.m. Registration begins
8 a.m. Tour starts
Baptist Health Imaging Center, 2705 Kentucky Ave., Paducah, Ky.

Baptist Health Paducah will host its fourth Spokes for Strokes bike tour to raise stroke awareness, along with funds for life-saving technologies and expanded stroke care services.

Spokes for Strokes will begin at 7 a.m. with registration at Baptist Health Imaging Center on the west end of campus at 2705 Kentucky Ave., followed by the tour at 8 a.m. Registration at active.com is $25 for an individual, $40 for couples and $50 for a family for four.

 The bike tour offers 10-, 35- or 65-mile rides through southern McCracken, Marshall and Graves counties. The longest ride includes challenging hills and five rest stops. The 35-mile ride is less hilly with three rest stops. The short ride is completely flat and stays in McCracken County. It includes one rest stop. All rides will be followed by support vehicles. Helmets are required.

Stroke is the one of the nation’s leading killers and the leading cause of serious, long-term disability.

“We will continue to focus on public education, so people of all ages know they should call 9-1-1 immediately if they see anyone experiencing signs of a stroke,” said Joseph Ashburn, M.D., stroke center director. “Time saved is brain saved, so if they seek immediate treatment, the effects of stroke may be reduced or even reversed.”
