Bio: Self-styled entertainer and historian Clarence Goodman brings about his brand of history-brought-to-life in more than two dozen topical presentations and private, historically-driven tours. His work has taken him all over the place and all over the map. He has been described simultaneously as “the history teacher you wish you had” and “the act you don’t want to follow.”
