Dowell Opening Act for Pauly Shore at SWOSU Panorama Event

Chris Dowell

Guitarist and stand-up comedian Chris Dowell of Norman will be the opening act for Wednesday night’s (March 7) SWOSU Panorama event on the Weatherford campus featuring comedian Pauly Shore.

Dowell, who after only his second open-mike appearance at the Oklahoma City Loony Bin, was offered a job as an MC. He has opened for such names as Tommy Chong and Thea Vidale. He credits his success to being the attention-deficit disorder afflicted middle child of a mortician and a special-ed teacher that provided the background for his unique and often warped sense of humor.

Dowell will kick off the evening at 7:30 p.m. in the Fine Arts Center with the popular Pauly Shore following.

Tickets are $10 for SWOSU students and $20 for non-SWOSU students. All tickets at the door will be $25. The event is for mature audiences only.

Tickets are available at the SWOSU Public Relations & Marketing Office, Room 205 of the Administration Building, and at the SWOSU Business Office, Room 109 of the Administration Building, on the Weatherford campus; and at the SWOSU Business Office on the Sayre campus. Tickets can also be purchased with a credit card by calling 580.774.3019. Non-SWOSU student tickets are also available at the Weatherford Daily News in downtown Weatherford.

Pauly had his own show, Totally Pauly, on MTV and served as a traveling ambassador, most memorably on MTV's annual Spring Break parties. At his first Spring Break gig, he unleashed his catchphrase, "weasel," on the world.

Shore's first film, the critically panned cult film Encino Man and his persona proved so popular he parlayed it into several other movies such as Son In Law; In The Army Now, Jury Duty, Bio-Dome and Pauly Shore is Dead.

SWOSU’s Panorama series has been bringing outstanding events to the Weatherford campus since 1991. Panorama is partially supported by an endowed lectureship sponsored by SBC.
