Jim Loucks' new rollicking solo performance in Southern storytelling style

Jim Loucks returns to the CincyFringe with his new rollicking solo performance. Based loosely on his childhood, The Biscuiteater is told in Loucks' distinctive Southern storytelling style with songs and humor. Granddaddy was his hero, a big man with a bigger personality, haunted by demons from his days as Chief of Police in small-town Georgia. A moving tribute to an imperfect hero. Loucks' previous show Cemetery Golf was a "Critic's Pick" by the Cincinnati Citybeat.

Group/Artist Bio: Solo performer and playwright Jim Loucks began his theatre career in summer stock at the Highlands Playhouse in North Carolina. After earning an MFA in Acting at the University of Georgia, Jim moved to Los Angeles where he has appeared in several plays and independent films. He has performed his first solo show Cemetery Golf at the United Solo Theatre Festival, The Drilling Company and 78th Street Theatre Lab in New York City; Beyond Baroque and The Electric Lodge in Venice, CA; the Hudson Opera House in Hudson, NY; the SoloFest at the Filling Station in Albuquerque, NM and the FronteraFest in Austin, TX. He has also taken the show to the Fringe Festivals in Boulder, Oahu, Hollywood, San Francisco, Orlando, San Diego, and Cincinnati (where he received a Citybeat "Critic's Pick"). The Biscuiteater is his second solo show, and he has performed it at FronteraFest (Austin, TX), the Oahu Fringe, the Solo Performance Festival at theatre off jackson (Seattle, WA), SoloFest at the Whitefire Theatre (Sherman Oaks, CA), the Electric Lodge (Venice, CA) and the United Solo Theatre Festival (NYC).
