Paul Harris & The Cleverlys
Paul Harris and the Cleverlys have established themselves as one of Branson’s most popular and unique shows and the Starlite Theatre is excited to have them here for 2015!
PAUL HARRIS, an Arkansas native, is widely known as a comedian, singer and musician, with tastes ranging from rock to bluegrass, and has been performing in Branson for nearly 20 years.
The 2015 show will be laced with PAUL’S signature stand-up comedy; a crazy, down home, Arkansas flavored, twist on life and of course he’ll grab a guitar and treat us to some terrific music along with fellow musicians/vocalists, STEVE BUSH, MATT SKATES, and COLE LEE.
PAUL’S easy-going charm and hilarious anecdotes prove he’s got the “right stuff“! Having opened for comedian, Jeff Foxworthy and the most awarded group in Country Music’s history, Alabama, PAUL is clearly a highly sought veteran of his craft!
While many comedians these days, “jump the line”, PAUL’S comedy is clean and family-friendly.
PAUL HARRIS has a lot going on right now with…
- A TV project in the works
- A recording deal on the horizon
- becoming a National Spokesman for Bad Boy Mowers,”the mower with an attitude,” built by American workers “right in the middle of the country in the Ozarks Mountains”.
PAUL’S on the move, so catch him while you can!
THE CLEVERLYS, Harris’ “backwoods” style band, started at the bottom and quickly gained a large following when their cover of the Black Eyed Peas tune “I Gotta Feeling” was posted on YouTube in 2010 and quickly went VIRAL! To date, the video has been viewed more than 2 million times! They also perform classic and contemporary tunes from artists such as the Zombies, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Flo Rida, Fergie, Beyonce and PSY… all with a blue grass feel or a “hillbilly” twist.
Digger Cleverly is the head of the “family band” and well, we’ll just let him take it from here…

“…is my brother, he left home at an early age, didn’t even leave Momma a note or nothin’. Him and a bunch of long hairs camped in the National Forest over round Cleveland Knob for 15 years. Finally he came to his senses and moved back home with his wife T Fairy and their son J Zone. They started an Earthy Retreat called the Sun People. Its actually just a teepee they set up behind Grand Mommy’s house, and they sit in there and burn funny smellin’ incense and make dream catchers outta cat hair. He plays banjo and is our Karma Director”.
“He goes by Lloyd… The first L is silent…kinda soft L…otherwise it would be pronounced LaLoyd… is our sister Delva’s boy. He grew up round Culp, Arkansas til he was bout six. When he was out in the barn lot at Aunt Punk’s place… well he got thirsty and grabbed the milk goat’s teat and went to nursing. Next day she was dead… she had contracted an unidentified fungus from his saliva. Next day these dudes showed up from the National Saliva Institute in St. Paul Minnesota wearing space suits and he lived in their laboratory til they found out that his spit is the antidote to the Kimodo Dragon bite! And he is single ladies!! He plays Dog House Bass, the Phonograph Sound Machine in the group, he also is huge in the Amish Rave scene”.
“…is mine and VD’s baby brother. He is the son of Daddy and Daddy’s baby momma. He plays Mandolin, Guitar, and is the best harmony singer in the family. He has decided to use his platform as a picker for the betterment of mankind… well whales… yes that’s right whales! The boy ain’t never even seen one but that don’t stop him from going down to the Niffin Hole every evening to see if one happens by. Anyways, I’m proud of the boy, he started an annual benefit squirrel hunt to save whales. For every squirrel that’s killed a dollar fi’teen cents is donated to Save the Whales… so ya’ll come and kill a squirrel and save a whale”.
