Gorham storyteller Chris Newcomb entertains with OTHER

GORHAM, ME — Ever feel a bit other than those around you? Do you find yourself doing things other than what’s expected of you? Do you process information in ways others don’t? Can’t seem to follow prescribed pathways? Are the words ‘different’ or ‘creative’ sometimes used to describe you? This 90-minute show is for you.

“OTHER” runs January 30 through February 4. It will be an evening of entertaining and thought-provoking stories by Gorham storyteller, Chris Newcomb. A memoir, of sorts, Other will have you laughing, thinking, and pondering about what’s normal and acceptable.

In 2022, Chris’s show, “Think You Might Be Wrong,” ran to full and sold-out houses. “Think You Might Be Wrong” is available to watch for free on Chris’s YouTube Channel: Thanks for Thinking with Chris Newcomb. There are lots of other videos there as well. Take a gander and get to know Chris’s style.

About Chris

Chris taught gifted & talented students in Maine Public Schools for 30 years. He retired in 2020. He also has a degree in fine arts and currently produces woodblock watercolor prints from his home in Gorham. The artist works primarily with abstract images. His work was featured at Sullivans Bakery last spring.

Previously, he produced interesting steel sculptures for the garden. For those who live in the village you may be familiar with his work as his yard is full of interesting and quite unique sculptures, trellises, and odd figures. A few of his “aliens” are found on Brighton Ave and a bright orange butterfly can be found at Baxter Library’s Butterfly garden.

You can see some of his prints and steel on his website:

If you’re interested in the creative process, Chris will be teaching a woodblock watercolor printmaking class through Gorham Adult Ed. February 7 through March 6. See for more information.

Chris invites you to come enjoy an evening of storytelling at its best.

January 30 through February 2 at 7 pm.
