Comedian Pat Hazell’s ride back in time in his show “The Wonder Bread Years” played to a packed house in the Q.M. Martin Auditorium at Panola College on Tuesday, April 16. The show was sponsored by the B.F. and Mary Payne Fund for the Preservation of Texas Culture.

The one-man show is a fast-paced, hilarious production that gracefully walks the line between stand-up and theater. Remembering pop rocks, milk snorts, sugar-highs and Atari, The Wonder Bread Years evolved from the realization that people have many more things in common than they have differences, many of which happen to be laugh-out-loud-funny.

Showtime declared Pat Hazell, “One of the Five Funniest People in America.”  Hazell made his first appearance on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson in 1989 and has since made six more appearances with Jay Leno.  Hazell served as Jerry Seinfeld’s opening act and became one of the original four writers for the NBC series “Seinfeld.” The Wonder Bread Years, a one-man show and tell, has been taped as a one-hour PBS special.
