Description

This was a speech from Jim Varney's Memorial Service at War Memorial Auditorium in Nashville, Tennessee on Feb 16, 2000. Daniel Butler was part of the talented writing team behind the countless Ernest commercials, movies, and the Saturday morning TV show. As an actor he appeared as Chef Eddie in ERNEST GOES TO CAMP, Earl the Barber in HEY VERN, IT'S ERNEST (TV SHOW) and Slave Willie in DR. OTTO among others. I feel this speech is as touching as it is funny and it served as a huge inspiration as I wrote the book, "The Importance of Being Ernest: The Life of Actor Jim Varney." https://www.facebook.com/beingernestbook
