'Diddlysquat' set to entertain while you dine

HERMISTON -- Actor Tim Behrens -- best known for his one-man Patrick McManus shows -- is performing a new show these days.

It's called The Road to Diddlysquat, but it wasn't written by the legendary humorist McManus. It was penned by Reed McColm, who also stars in the two-man show, which comes to Hermiston on Nov. 15 at the Hermiston Conference Center.

The comedy follows the hilarious journey of an old man named George, played by Behrens, whose memory just ain't what it used to be.

Then suddenly he remembers something bad he did a long time ago and feels compelled to fix it.

He recruits his good buddy Carlton, played by McColm, to accompany him on his quest to redemption.

Only trouble is, when these two set out on their trek, there's one little problem plaguing them -- they have no idea where they're headed. But they really don't care because they enjoy each other's company.

The show is a dinner theater, sponsored by the Desert Arts Council. Cost is $50. Dinner starts at 6:30 p.m. Showtime is at 8 p.m. Tickets are available by calling 541-567-6151.
