Long before Val Kilmer found himself interested in the person, Mark Twain, there was Hal Holbrook. Like a long time before. Holbrook's show, Mark Twain Tonight, has been touring the country since 1954. That's sixty years for anyone who's worse at math than I am. Talk about dedication. Of course, Twain was a man worth impersonating, if not for his surprisingly open-minded political views, than for his sharp wit. As Holbrook once said in an interview, Twain was the first American stand-up comic. Oh, and if you were wondering, he changes the show every year, just to keep an old thing fresh. See it at 7:30 p.m. Saturday at the Bass Performance Hall (525 Commerce St., Fort Worth). Tickets are selling fast, but what's still available starts at $60. More information at basshall.com.
