Mark Twain and the Lecture Circuit


The great American humorist Mark Twain turned to lecturing as a method of making money. His lectures competed with other forms of entertainment, but he always drew a large audience. His secret was the wonderful stories he told, some true and some fabricated. In this presentation, Twain look-alike Seiler recounts some of Twain’s best-loved writings as he might have presented them on the lecture circuit.
