Old Man Beasley

   Old Man Beasley, Country Comic & Commercial Spokesperson!

 

Introducing "Old Man Beasley," a hilarious ole geezer with a firecracker personality, who is by all his many years of life experiences a definite crowd-pleaser. Old Man Beasley has been a special event favorite entertainer for festivals, trade shows, theater stages, TV and radio events since 1984! That's over 30 years of in the spotlight know-how!


Who is Old Man Beasley???  He's a super-duper shopper who knows a great buy when he sees it. Having been around quite a while, the old boy still remembers "the good ole days" and also looks forward to the exciting future! He still has the Model T he bought 'slightly used,'  but would love to have a new Mustang Shelby to zip around in!!!


Fads and fashions come and go, from the '20s flaunty flappers, to the "baby boomers" and mod 60's to neo new wave, Gen X-ers and now techno-trendy bunch, and Old Man Beasley has seen them all! Next, here's an outline all about just one of "Old Man Beasley's" many entertaining adventures and also lots more...read on!!!

For three years to entertain the tourists at the popular resort Virginia Beach VA,  "Ocean Occasions" (which evolved into the very successful Clear Channel SFX Entertainment's "Beach Events") engaged "Old Man Beasley" to be a walkin,' talkin' boardwalk ambassador.  "Old Man Beasley" would create quite a hilarious situation on the Virginia Beach oceanfront boardwalk with a very unique comedy skit!

Several times an hour he would stroll the boardwalk until he found a sizable audience. Just from his funny geezer appearance, actions and motions, he would gather quite a crowd together by launching into a zany routine where he made a loud and "sorrowful" announcement that he was heartbroken! He related his story of coming to get joyfully married on the oceanfront, but was left at the beach alter by his lady friend masseuse and now fiance' "Pearl" and now could not go back to the old folks home to face his old coot friends. Having been bragging about his new bride to be just a little too much, if he showed up without a bride or at least some honeymoon photos, he'd never be able to live down the shame and their jeers and taunts!

Being he had his "hotrod walker" to help him get around, complete with an MP3 player preloaded with 'The Wedding March" and also his honeymoon suitcase all packed and along with him, he also had Pearl's wedding veil and flower bouquet...all he needed now was ....a bride!!!



"Old Man Beasley" would spot ladies in the crowd sharing in the fun as he told his quick tale of woe, and then asking for a favor, he'd ask one or more to be his "stand in bride!" His idea is to at least fake some "selfies" he could send back to the old coots with the caption "Having a great honeymoon at the beach...eat yer hearts out!!!" Many hundreds of young ladies went home with lots of laughs and a zany "Old Man Beasley's Marriage License" and a nice 'Thank you' from Virginia Beach!

Did you or know anybody that had a "Mrs. Beasley" doll? Well, there is also an "Old Man Beasley" doll, too!
