Bob Anderson and David Hirschi Guest StarA new Branson artist, Bob Anderson, and a long-time Branson comedian, David Hirschi, are the next guests on the Gene Williams Country Television Show.
"Bob Anderson is much more than one voice and on my program, he shows why People Magazine said he is the best singing impressionist in show business. Bob has a morning show at the Mickey Gilley Theatre and is a welcome addition to Branson," said Gene.
"Our next show features comedian David Hirschi who is also known as Slim Chance from Yakov Smirnoff’s show. In addition to being the producer and director of Yakov’s highly successful Branson show for the past five years, David’s vast experiences include performing as a comedian on Las Vegas stages and creating stage shows for science museums and being the creative producer of the successful Broadway show As Long As We Both Shall Laugh," said Gene, whose show is seen in 11 markets and is sponsored by Lucas Oil Products.
