Rusty DeWees: Entertainer, comedic artist, actor, producer, writer, musician, master of duct tape…and the Logger of course! Rusty does it all and keeps his fans and audiences laughing, as he puts it, "till their backs get better." Rusty grew up in Stowe, Vermont where he was actively involved in theatre throughout high school and college. As a young adult, he performed with the award winning Vermont Repertory Theatre, before moving to New York City where he trained at the George Loris Actors Theatre School and the Lee Strasberg Institute. This professional training was followed by scores of notable roles off-Broadway, and in television, film, and national commercials. Missing his home state, Rusty moved back to Vermont where he continued his acting career and developed the Logger character. An eclectic and innovative act, THE LOGGER one-man comedy show is best described as "Blue Collar Comedy" meets "Prairie Home Companion", and has been steadily selling out theatres, large and small, throughout New England ever since it hit the stage in 1998. The success of the live act has spawned three Logger DVDs, two CDs, five calendars, Logger apparel (duct tape wallets and Logger thongs included), and Scrawlins, a compilation of Rusty's columns for syndicated and regional newspapers. Rusty also writes, voices, directs, and produces radio and television spots for various companies throughout New England, and has always, throughout his career, donated his time to promote positive lifestyle choices among high school age kids.
