Holbrook first took on the persona of Mark Twain during his senior year at Denison University. He began touring his show when he was just 29, and now, 62 years later, with over 2000 performances under his belt, Holbrook has been Mark Twain longer than Samuel L. Clemens himself!
At the age of 91, Holbrook plans to keep touring his one-man show. As he has said, “The purpose of doing Mark Twain is to make people think.”
