It's another big announcement from the Buddy Holly Center in Lubbock and just the latest sign that life is getting back to normal in Lubbock and throughout the United States after a year of the coronavirus pandemic.

Get ready to laugh and think about the issues of the day.

Comedian and political commentator Chad Prather will be coming to Lubbock in November and will be performing at Buddy Holly Hall. Prather will perform on Friday, November 5 at Buddy Holly Hall. So what can you expect from Prather? According to Buddy Holly Hall, you can expect a night of humor, observations, and more from a man commonly referred to as the "modern-day Will Rogers".

Chad Prather started entertaining audiences on television as early as two years old. The desire to be onstage started early. He began acting at the age of 6 and by the age of 20 he was traveling all over the world - from Africa to Southeast Asia, from Russia to Central America - using his communication skills to influence international leaders with humor and inspiration.

Back home in America, as "the preacher that makes everyone laugh," he was leading churches and non-profit organizations. Eventually Prather's communication skills opened doors for him to move into the corporate arena of motivational speaking and writing.

Tickets for Chad Prather go on sale on Friday, June 11 at 10:05 a.m. Tickets can be purchased at www.buddyhollyhall.com and range in price from $25 to $49. Tickets can also be purchased at 800-514-3849 and at the Buddy Holly Hall Ticket Office located at 1300 Mac Davis Lane.
