The Alabama Theatre is presenting Ricky Mokel, played by Grant Turner, on August 27th at 7 p.m. Mokel is the featured comedian of ONE The Show.
Turner began his career in the Atlanta advertising business. During that time he performed comedy as a hobby, doing shows in a downtown pizza parlor. Unlike many other comedians, however, Turner performs G-rated shows that are appropriate for all ages.
When speaking about his Mokel character he said, “I think Ricky is who I was supposed to be until I was 5 years old and hit my face on a brick flower bed. I was different after that. But now I’m Ricky again.”
Never doing the same thing twice, Turner as Mokel will let you see a side of him that has not been seen before.
Turner is appearing as part of the Alabama Theatre’s Guest Artist Concert Series with artists such as Martina McBride, Loretta Lynn, Josh Turner, Four Tops, The Temptations, and many more.
