Threaded with some fun facts about the “Fab Four,” the show is sure to get audiences Twistin’ and Shoutin’… Rick Adam as Professor Paddy-Whack has been entertaining people from coast to coast for over forty years, traveling to Europe, China and Russia, playing schools, colleges, prisons, fairs and festivals, not to mention appearing in television and films.
