Just Me Perri Gaffney
About This Show
Just Me is masterful storytelling in the combined oral traditions of American folktales and African history-keeping griots. Perri Gaffney shares true stories from the intricate tapestry of her life experiences that helped mold her into the compassionate and considerate woman some know her to be… and the uncompromising, attitudinal, know-it-all that others mistake her to be. After some love, encouragement, and merciless browbeating from friends and family, Perri decided to take her multimedia stories on the road. It’s 85 minutes of non-stop comedy that enlightens as it entertains.
