Loudon Wainwright

Saturday | November 13, 2021 | 7:30PM

Perhaps best known for his song “Dead Skunk” sung by the “singing surgeon” character he played on M*A*S*H, Loudon Wainwright's bright career extends on screen, on stage, and in studio with 27 albums to date.

Loudon Wainwright is a Grammy Award-winning singer, songwriter, humorist, and actor. His songs have been covered by Johnny Cash, Mose Allison, his son Rufus Wainwright, Bonnie Raitt, and Earl Scruggs among others. As an actor he has appeared on TV (M*A*S*H, Ally McBeal, Undeclared) in movies (Big Fish, The Aviator, Knocked Up), on Broadway (Pump Boys and Dinettes) and Off (Hot Lunch Apostles, Surviving Twin). Wainwright also created a one-man theatrical show, Surviving Twin, which combines his songs and the writings of his late father, and premiered as a special on Netflix. In 2017, Wainwright published his memoir, ‘LINER NOTES’, which led to appearances on Fresh Air with Terry Gross and WTF with Marc Maron.

Quote symbolLoudon is one of the great national treasures...a powerful reminder to me that I must always be honest, funny and true to myself.”
