Les Long from Louisburg, N. C.: Doing Things Here, There and Everywhere
Who is Les Long? If you’re from the big city, you may ask “Who is Les Long?” If you live in the Franklin County N.C. area, you may know him as Halbert Long, but you have to say it as one word. Les grew up in an area near Louisburg NC by the name of Centerville. Since 1970, this only child born in Louisburg, North Carolina, has made a name for himself as the jokester of the family. He always kept everyone in tears with his country humor and persona. Les Long, Comedian, Gospel Comic, Actor, Host and Producer, is best known for his humor. People often ask him to be the entertainment for their event, to do comedy or to cook and sometimes both. Around home, he considerers himself a broke local celebrity. Bottom line: he is broke, country and proud of it!
“I am as country as a brown egg. I was country when country wasn’t cool. I cook country. I talk country. I’m country born, country bred and when I die I’ll be country dead," said Les Long.
For far too long it has been the big cities that has gotten all the recognition! New York and Los Angeles to name a few. The smaller, rural, country towns have come far; whereas they have earned respect in the entertainment industry. Many hidden talents come from these dirt roads; with one to two stop light towns, where the residents know each other’s families and friends. It is these small country areas where raw talent is born, due to the limited activities and transportation in the rural streets of the South. As a result, people can stand proud now regardless of where they come from in 2011.
Les Long and many other renowned entertainers can attest to this fact that big things come in small packages and come from small towns too.
