Features a Zoom performance-reading of Fibber McGee the Census Taker from the 1940s. During the show, comedian Fibber McGee becomes a Census Taker (Enumerator), visiting various neighbors with his list of official questions. As always, Fibber is bound to get a little off track and ruffle a few feathers!
Prior to the show, museum staff will present a short lecture on the Fibber McGee and Molly radio program, a prime-time situation comedy that ran from 1935-1956. Modern-day Census Enumerator, Andrea Aven, will conclude the show with a patriotic talk about the 2020 Census. It’s all part of a historical celebration of American culture on June 14, Flag Day.
