Buck Howdy at Beardsley Zoo
Noggin Entertainer Buck Howdy has been called "the nexus of Roy Rogers, Will Rogers and Mr. Rogers," described as "a cross between Roy Rogers and Shrek," or "Gene Autry meets Dr. Demento!" And while there's a nugget of truth in each of those depictions, they miss the obvious: Buck Howdy is simply an overgrown kid with an over-sized talent for entertaining.
Buck has performed multiple times at The White House, at the Grand Ole Opry, and in hundreds of concerts at schools, state fairs and performing arts centers from coast to coast. Now he is here in Bridgeport, performing for families at Connecticut's Beardsley Zoo!
You can see Buck perform at the Beardsley Zoo for free (with regular Zoo admission) on Saturdays and Sundays during July at 11 am, 1 pm and 2:30 pm.
