GENE MCFALL has performed as Will Rogers in 43 states since 1982. He toured as James Whitmore's understudy in Will Rogers' U.S.A., and was the first person other than Whitmore to tour that show. In 1989 Gene spent hundreds of hours in research, drew upon his 7 years performance as Will, and compiled his own show. The Witty World of Will Rogers, Gene McFall's original one-man show, recreates America's favorite Cowboy Humorist and Oklahoma's favorite son, Will Rogers, as he appeared on his lecture circuit in 1935. Material is taken from Will's writings and broadcasts, and is as relevant today as when he said it. Witty World of Will Rogers is a show he feels suits him best as an actor and effectively presents Will's humor and philosophy. Gene portrayed Will Rogers from ages 27 to 55 in Oklahoma Educational Television's highly acclaimed centennial mini-series, Oklahoma Passage.
