Tim Sample

Tim Sample has been widely acknowledged as New England's premier native humorist. Novelist Stephen King has likened Sample's work to that of Mark Twain, and Charles Kuralt called him "Maine's humorist laureate." Tim's books, albums, and videos (including four albums and a video for the Bert and I company) have sold well over a million copies. In the summer of 1993 Tim was recruited by Charles Kuralt as a correspondent for the Emmy Award winning TV Show CBS News Sunday Morning. Over the following 11 years Tim produced over 100 "Postcards from Maine" segments which introduced millions of CBS viewers around the nation and the world to the wonders of Tim Sample's home state.
