Jerry Bradshaw began performing when he was 10 years old. When he was a teen he liked to play “Horror Movie” after dark, on the streets with his cousin – with a real butcher’s knife. He was only stopped by police once. He has been involved in numerous productions – both local and out of state. He would like to do a cabaret show in Thailand just to say he did. He has written, directed and acted in several shows in the Flint area. Yes, they were real – not the kind performed alone in a dumpster. From 2000-2001 he was the Drama Coach at Davison High School. Truth be told – the kids coached him. In 2007 he earned a performance spot at The Duplex in New York City. He performed at Rose’s Turn, NYC. Back home again, he performed with Cal Roberts – a former member of The Platters – as a featured singer. From 2004-2005 he was lead singer of an oldies band ‘Neon Dreams’. He was accepted into Berklee College of Music in 2008 based on his ear and improvisational skills. He was an opening performer for Debbie Reynolds in 2005 during her Chesaning Showboat appearance. He tried to sneak into her dressing room to try on her wigs. He was unsuccessful. He has written four plays – two of which have been performed, two more of which were entered in the KCACTF (Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival) in 2009. He enjoys cats. Are you laughing? Well, stop. He has written a screenplay (as yet unproduced) and in 2007 he wrote, directed and performed in ‘Laugh-In: The Flint Edition’ to raise money for local charities. He pissed off Republicans – the show was a success. In late 2009 he joined the musical/comedy trio ‘The Village Idiots’ and has performed with them nationally where he employs impeccable improv skills, sings, writes parodies and plays a mean and filthy tambourine. Singing is his passion – though all forms of entertainment are dear to his heart. Especially Debbie Reynolds’ wigs. In 20 years you can read his autobiography ‘I Ain’t The Damn Wizard of Oz!’ and in 30 years you can read the follow up ‘While I’m Down Here, Don’t Step On My Face!!’ – but, until that time comes – check out his articles.
