This past year my mother turned 67. For her birthday, I got her an old comedy routine called ‘Is There Life Outside The South?’ by Dr. Tim Stivers.
Dr. Stivers is a podiatrist who turned to comedy at some point in his life. He recorded this album in a club somewhere on some date for some reason. The comedy routine was either written by him, or someone else. Maybe both. He was born somewhere, on some date, presumably in Kentucky. He might be married, he might not be. He might have kids, but maybe not. I am fairly sure he’s still alive because his website doesn’t say he’s dead.
At this stage, I presume he had a life long love of comedy and tried it out, possible in a mid-life crisis. He may even possibly be a practicing doctor, but I think that may be unlikely. He has at least two albums, maybe more, but not fewer.
So why all the ambiguity?
Because there is no Wiki article.
That’s right. You read it correctly. There is no Wiki article. Heck, he barely even registers on a Google search. If it weren’t for the fact that I have heard his album, I would be challenging the fact that he even exists at all.
No Wiki article. Yet.
While Dr. Stivers doesn’t have a Wiki article, he does have an e-mail address. I do believe I’m going to write a short message and ask if I can get enough information to start one. This is my new mission in life when I am not working, fathering, training for my ride or blogging.
I’ll leave y’all with the my favorite name of a church, from the routine:
1st Baptist Evangelical Reformed Seven Day Pentecostal Tabernacle Latter Day Brotherhood of God and Christ Church. Incorporated.
And so it goes.
